Nine teams made up of cancer survivors, families, caregivers, local faith-based groups, businesses and clubs walked 12 hours in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Carroll County on June 15 and raised more than $86,000.
Relay For Life is a community-based, volunteer-driven event supporting the fight against cancer. Individuals and teams gather at a track or park to camp out and walk overnight in confidence that their effort will lead to a cure. All walkers share the common goal of keeping at least one team member on the track throughout the event. Teams organize and complete fundraisers to raise money for the cause and fundraising may continue at the team’s campout during the event. These funds bring the American Cancer Society one step closer to its goal of helping people stay well; by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
