Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in thousands of communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer.
Relay For Life Community Development Manager Tony Holly stopped by the WHOW Morning Show to explain more in depth the history and purpose of the fundraiser.
The team fundraising event looks for team members to take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps.
Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations.
The DeWitt County Relay For Life will take place tomorrow at Clinton High School from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Visit www.relayforlife.org/dewittil for more information on the DeWitt County Relay For Life.
