Kick-off Rally for 'Relay for Life' January 22
Rod Proffitt | 1/11/13

Relay For Life 2013 is set for June 21st and 22nd this year. To get things started, we invite you to attend the Kick-off Rally January 22nd. Everyone is welcome! It is a chance to get your team registered, have some fun and learn more about the American Cancer Society and why it is so important to help with this fundraising event. Don’t have a team – we can help you form one, join one, or help one. Everyone is welcome!

This year the national theme is “Dream Big, Hope Big, Relay Big”.  We want to build on that theme by adopting an acronym for “BIG” that captures the local enthusiasm for this event. Help us out here! We have some great people coordinating efforts to involve youth this year; a focus we have not had in several years.

Relay For Life began in 1985 with one man’s 24 hour walk/run around a track to raise $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 5,100 communities; not just in the U.S., but in another 20 countries. You can join your friends, neighbors and cancer fighters everywhere in this effort. Relay brings together people from all walks of life – all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

We look forward to seeing you at the Relay Kick-off Rally January 22nd, 6:30 P.M., at the Pagosa Lakes POA office conference room……and bring your friends.
