The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
Anyone can participate in Relay For Life. Friends, families, neighbors, classmates, sports teams, etc., can form their own teams. No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay.
The only requirement to participate in Relay For Life is the $10 registration/commitment fee (per person) that is due upon registration. After that, anything you can raise through individual, team, or online fund-raising is graciously accepted. It is recommended that each participant sets a personal goal to raise $100. If you raise more, that’s even better. Even if you do not raise $100, you are still welcome to participate.
If you want to be part of Relay, you can start a team or join an existing team online. You can also make an online donation.
UNLV’s Relay for life is this Fri April 16,2010 from 6 am to 6am at the UNLV track. 52 teams are currently signed up and more are encouraged to sign up a team or join a current team.
