“I’m more than honored to chair. I have big shoes to fill. I don’t do it alone. It’s because of the community and because of the group I’m with and the amazing volunteers that are fighting alongside.”
Said Chiara C. Clayton, ACS senior community representative: “Relay is such a unique event. As the Society's signature event, Relay has been bringing cancer survivors and anyone touched by the disease together. It is held overnight in honor of the fact that cancer never sleeps. This is something our community can do to combat this.”
There is hardly anyone in our community or around the world who hasn’t been touched by cancer in one way or another whether they have had cancer, whether they’re a survivor, or whether someone in their family has had cancer, or a friend, co-worker or an acquaintance. Everybody knows someone who has had cancer. It’s very rare to find someone who hasn’t.
Fight back against a disease that has taken too much. Get involved, along with your friends and family. You are the key ingredient to Relay’s success! Relay needs your help. They are actively recruiting teams and volunteers right now!
