Channel 9 Anchor Scott Wickersham will host this year’s Relay for Life Charlotte on Sat., May 19 at First Ward Park.
Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in thousands of communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give of their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer.
Join us to bring communities together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.
When you participate in a Relay For Life event, you become a vital part of the American Cancer Society: a volunteer. You are now part of an organization of 3.5 million, survivors, patients, advocates, volunteers, caregivers, researchers, doing everything within our power to save lives.
By selflessly devoting your time and energy through raising awareness and money, you become the voice of the American Cancer Society in your community. It's a big job and it’s not one that we take for granted. Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission to save lives and celebrate life.
Date: Sat., May 19, 2018 Time: 5p.m.
Location: First Ward Park, 201 E. 7th St., Charlotte, NC
WHAT IS RELAY FOR LIFE?
Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don't stop because they're tired, and for one night, neither do we.
Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.
