Members of the community are invited to help the American Cancer Society celebrate a world with less cancer and more birthdays on Saturday, June 1 by participating in the annual Relay For Life of Rockville at Tilden Middle School.
Relay For Life is the signature community fundraising walk of the American Cancer Society, to fund research for all types of cancer, patient services, support programs and advocacy. It is a family-friendly, overnight, team event that celebrates the lives of cancer survivors and caregivers, remembers those who have been lost to cancer and enables everyone, young and old, to fight back against the disease.
Our event in Rockville will begin with a survivor & caregiver reception, leading into the opening ceremony at 1:00 PM. From there, we will have teams made up of families, friends, business and organizations camping out around the football stadium & taking turns representing their team while walking around the track. We will be walking around the clock until our closing/fight back ceremony at 1:00 AM.
There will be live entertainment including a DJ, bands, games for all ages, ShutterBooth, a silent auction & lots of fun for the entire community!
For more information or to find out how to join as a participant or volunteer, please contact event chair Nancy Coulter at email@example.com or visit our websitehttp://www.rockvillerelay.org or you can find us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
We look forward to seeing you at Relay to help us create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
