By Staff | Mar 21, 2012

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Cape Coral is just around the corner. Register your team today by calling the American Cancer Society at (239) 936-1113 or visiting the event website at www.relayforlife.org/capecoralfl . This “celebration of life” brings the Cape Coral community together in a unified effort to fight cancer.

Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations, and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, until 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 29, at Mariner High School.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s version of an athletic relay, but with a new twist. Relay For Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to support the activities of the American Cancer Society. Participants camp out at the Relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment.

Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals, and schools collect donations and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts.

“Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront,” said Crystal Kaczynski, event chair, in a prepared statement. “Many participants are our family, friends and neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been not only reducing death rates, but also in the quality of life following cancer treatment.

“The funds raised enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services,” said Donna Germain, Team Development chair, in a prepared statement. “Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the money raised by participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”
