Event Description

On May 31th, the Relay For Life of Massac County will kick off with a special Survivors Lap, a moving experience honoring those who have defeated cancer. Survivors will join together to walk the opening lap, unified in victory and hope, while the rest of the event’s participants surround the track to cheer them on. Relay For Life is a fundraising event in which individuals and teams of participants in over 6,100 communities nationwide walk around a track overnight to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved one lost, and commit to fight back against the disease. The money raised through Relay For Life supports the efforts of the American Cancer Society to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
If you are a cancer survivor or caregiver and would like to take part in the Relay For Life of Massac County, call your American Cancer Society or visit website.
