CULPEPER, VA – The American Cancer Society will host a Relay Rally at Germanna Community College in Culpeper, Virginia on Thursday, April 26th from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM. The event is open to anyone interested in helping to save lives from cancer. Information will be shared about the American Cancer Society and its signature fundraising event that celebrates cancer survivors, Relay For Life, and numerous other ways in which community members can get involved in the fight against cancer. The rally will also feature Angela Kegler, a cancer survivor, caregiver and 20-year volunteer with the American Cancer Society and its sister advocacy organization, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, as the event’s motivational guest speaker. Kegler travels across the country to train Society staff and volunteers through her role on the American Cancer Society’s National Leadership Training Team.
The world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, Relay For Life mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against the disease. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . 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.
Relay For Life began in 1985 with one man who walked and ran around a track for 24 hours and raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 5,100 communities in the United States and 20 other countries and will raise funds to support the Society’s mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and fighting back.
