The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Gresham will host a kickoff event on February 9th from 6:00-8:00 PM at Gresham Ford as volunteers and participants launch fundraising efforts for the year. Come join in the Carnival antics as they anticipate 2016 with hope and opportunities in this new year. The kickoff will honor cancer survivors and caregivers, and will feature speakers from the community who have benefitted from the funds raised at Relay For Life. Those interested will also be able to register to participate in the carnival themed event to be held on June 25, 2016 beginning at noon at Main City Park.
The world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, Relay For Life mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against cancer. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 6,000 communities in the United States and 20 other countries and will raise funds to support the mission of the American Cancer Society to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.
