Relay for Life
Last year I participated in Relay for Life, which is an amazing national annual event to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Along with some friends and family we organized a team of about 30 people, which joined hundred of others for our local Relay here in Fairfield. I have set a personal goal to raise at least $1,000 this year from my blog readers, and hopefully more. If each of you contributes $25-50, we cean rach $1,000 in no time. Please visit my personal Relay for Life page to make your donation. There is also information below if you would like to participate with us in this year's event. Please read on for more information.
This year, cancer will strike more than 1.3 million Americans and take more than half a million lives. My family has been touched by cancer too many time, making this is a very personal cause for me. Two years ago we lost my mother to Lung cancer. My wife Pamela's two sisters are both breast cancer survivors. Based on her family and genetic history, Pamela herself faces an 80% lifetime risk of breast cancer. As friends and family, we can do something to save lives and help those already fighting this disease. That’s why I’m taking action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life® in Fairfield, CT.
<>Relay is an overnight event that unites our community in a common effort to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The Society works every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people in our community who have cancer through its many programs and services. Together, we can help the American Cancer Society accelerate the progress toward a cancer-free future.
