Relay For Life of Douglas County Team Captains Meeting

Team Captains and those interested in forming a team are welcome to attend the March meeting to be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2013. The informational meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Meeting Room A on the lower level. This meeting will prepare teams for a successful Relay For Life, which is the nationwide fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. This year’s Relay event will begin on Friday, June 7th at Free State High School’s track.

Relay teams raise funds to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those lost, and fight back to find a cure. They walk the track from Friday at 7:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. on Saturday with activities, food and camaraderie for a common goal. The community is invited to participate in the event, whether as a team member or to show support.

Did you know that last year, 486 Kansas cancer patients received free wigs, hats, turbans and other helpful items? You can help provide those services and many others, by participating and supporting the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.
