Furnas County Relay For Life July 15

Thursday, February 18, 2016

We have seen many changes take place in politics and our economy.

However one constant is that many people are battling cancer and many others are supporting their loved ones each and every day.

These realities make dollars donated and hours volunteered to the American Cancer Society in Furnas and Red Willow Counties so important.

Local volunteers are a huge part of the nationwide effort to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

But additional volunteers are needed to help in this effort. Plans are underway for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Furnas County July 15, 2016, at Cambridge, Nebraska.

Money raised at Relay For Life helps the American Cancer Society's mission of helping people stay well and get well, finding cures and fighting back against cancer.

Relay For Life supports the Society's vital research efforts, as well as programs for patients including transportation assistance and free lodging at Hope Lodge facilities.

Relay For Life also makes it possible for the ACS to provide helpful information on cancer, treatments, support services and more 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at 1-800-227-2345 or cancer.org.

Now is the time for Furnas County and Red Willow County individuals, families, groups, churches, schools and businesses to join in the fight against cancer through Relay For Life. Celebrate those survivors. Remember those loved ones no longer here.

Pledge to fight back against this disease. Form a team and/or volunteer for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life today.

Call 1-800-227-2345 or visit RelayForLife.org for more information on local opportunities or contact Judy Hayes, Event Leader, 308-697-3637 or jhayes@atcjet.net or Janet McClain, Team Recruitment Chair, 308-268-3905 or jlmcclain_64@live.com.
