Support Relay for Life at Page High School
May 18, 2012 by Sarah
This year, Page High School in Greensboro will be hosting the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” fundraiser in early June.
Relay for Life aims to raise the funding necessary to combat cancer and the organization achieves this goal by providing communities with opportunities to participate in the battle. Ultimately, the organization aspires to save lives and create a world where the number of cancer victims is decreased and the number of birthdays is increased.
The community is calling cancer survivors, cancer victims, people who have lost loved ones in the battle with cancer, civic organizations, faith-based institutions, families, businesses, and anybody else with the desire, to participate in the fight or to just come out and show their support. The school or the organization leaders could invest in flyer printing in an effort to spread the word throughout the community and maximize participation in the event.
The event is scheduled to take place over a twelve-hour time span, beginning on June 2 but concluding on June 3. During this time, teams and individuals are going to camp out while they keep at least one person on the track at all times. Though some of the teams will hold special on-site fundraising activities on the day of the event, most of the teams will already have completed their fundraising prior to the event.
By providing a common and important goal for all of its participants and supporters, Relay unites people from all walks of life, thereby creating a more closely-knit community.
