Relay for Life

Emotional, powerful and life altering event takes place June 7 at Polson Park

Relay For Life is an event that is emotional, powerful, and a life-altering experience.

It is happening on June 7 at Polson Park, and your help is needed to volunteer or to participate as a team.

Here is why I Relay:

I Relay for my grandma, who fought (and won) the fight against breast cancer like a pro.  I Relay for my cousin, who was such an inspiration and she is missed, cancer took her so quickly.

I Relay for all the women in my family who have lost a piece of themselves to cancer.

I Relay for my grandfather, my sister, my friend, and my co-workers.

But most importantly, I Relay for my daughter.

I want for her to grow up in a world where cancer isn’t feared.   A world where the words ‘it’s cancer’ means help, support, and absolute survival.

Emily Dickenson wrote:  “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.”

I Relay because I want to have Hope.
