2017 Relay For Life Raises $123K; Fundraising Continues Through August

Together we can be part of the American Cancer Society's lifesaving mission to make a difference and stop cancer in its tracks by raising critical funds for life saving research studies, crucial patient care programs, education and prevention initiatives.

For the first time in recent years, Kings Mountain Relay will merge with the county event and numerous teams are ready to have fun on the theme, "Super Heroes, " and rally for a good cause.

Julie Pearson, Community Manager for a number of years, began her activity with Relay after the death of a family member. Caregivers will be honored during the caregivers' lap at 7 p.m.

This year's Relay for Life event will be held at the Chambers County Agricultural Center in LaFayette.

A cancer-fighting fundraiser that once drew hundreds of participants for a 24-hour relay will pass the baton in search of a new event.

The opening Survivors' Lap is always a highlight, and we are hoping that as many survivors as possible join us for the start of Relay for Life Donegal on May 27 at 5pm. "We want the survivors to know they are loved and be there as a community to support them".

Carlisle held its Relay For Life event Friday night into Saturday, also with rain coming down. Throughout the event, teams can continue fundraising, play games, enjoy entertainment and learn more about advocacy. Last year, Relay for Life events in the United States raised over 279 million dollars.
