American Cancer Society’s Signature Fundraising Event Empowers Community to Fight Back Against Cancer and Save Lives
The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers to recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2019 Relay For Life of LaBelle. Cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders and anyone wanting to make a difference are invited to participate in
Kick-off on September 11, at the First Baptist Social Hall, 330 N Main St, LaBelle, FL 33935 at 6 p.m.
Relay For Life is a fun event that brings together families, friends, businesses, hospitals, schools and faith-based groups to celebrate the lives of those who have had cancer, remember those who lost their battle, and fight back against the disease.
“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon,” said Joy Brigham, Relay For Life Specialist. “Relay For Life is the community’s chance to unite in the fight against cancer and support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let our community know that cancer can be defeated.”

About the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. As we mark our 100th birthday in 2013, we’re determined to finish the fight against cancer. We’re finding cures as the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more.
