she is pleased with this year's efforts, noting that even a tough economic
climate couldn't hinder the success of Relay.
"Each dollar they raised will be put to good use to find a cure for this
devastating disease," she said. "The Relay participants are dedicated, hard
working and, most importantly, passionate about raising money so no more
lives are affected."
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight community
celebration where individuals and teams camp out and take turns walking
around a track relay style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall,
participants light hundreds of luminaria around the track in a moving

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents hope that those lost
to cancer will never be forgotten, those who face cancer will be supported
and that one day cancer will be eliminated
