American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Beaufort to hold kickoff on Monday, March 21 at Keyserling Cancer Center

2 mins read

The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe as a way to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones who lost, and take action to finish the fight against cancer once and for all.

Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Individuals and teams raise funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save more lives from cancer.

The Beaufort Chapter of Relay for Life is gathering to kick off this year’s fundraising season.

Guests will hear how the community has benefited from funds raised in past years, honor local cancer survivors, and learn how this year’s theme of “paint the world purple” will serve to save lives from cancer. Teams can register for the event which will be held on October 28th.

So on Monday, March 21 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. at the Keyserling Cancer Center located at 1680 Ribaut Road, join the many dedicated Beaufortonians determined to do what they can to fight cancer. Wendy Pollitzer, Beaufort’s Community Manager for Relay For Life and Sue Fillmore, Beaufort’s Event Lead Team volunteer, will engage new and existing team captains and members with videos and information, offer fundraising ideas and answer any questions about the 2016 event. Please contact Wendy Pollitzer at Wendy.Pollitzer@cancer.orgor or 843-263-3216 to RSVP.
