The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Southern Chester County at Oxford kicks off its new fundraising season on January 22nd at 7:30pm at Margherita’s Italian Restaurant, 325 Limestone Rd, Oxford, PA. Together, we can beat our biggest rival. The community is invited to come out and learn more about the Relay For Life movement and how they can help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle.
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is the world’s largest movement to end cancer. If you’re looking to make the greatest impact to save lives from cancer, this is the most powerful event you will ever participate in. Relay is an inspiring, one-of-a-kind experience that unites people in nearly every community to finish the fight against every kind of cancer.
Although it sounds like a running event, Relay For Life is actually a walk, and anyone can participate. People form teams and raise money together leading up to the event. Then, everyone comes together for a night of fun that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers loved ones lost to cancer, and unites us in our commitment to fight back against the disease. Relay is traditionally an overnight event that is symbolic of the fact that cancer never rests, so neither do we. There is food, activities, and entertainment to keep participants going the entire time!
This year, an estimated 1.3 million people in the U.S. will participate in more than 2,000 events to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness. Funds raised support the American Cancer Society 24/7 cancer help line and free rides to chemo. By joining the Relay For Life event, you can help attack cancer from every angle.
