On Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Clawson will officially get underway as event volunteers and participants gather at the Clawson City Hall for a kickoff rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year. Members of the community are encouraged to attend.
Although the Relay For Life of Clawson is more than three months away, now is the time to get involved. One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon. Residents are invited to attend the kickoff celebration to learn more about the upcoming event and how they can become part of an exciting overnight event that will pave the way to a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Relay For Life participants and visitors have a chance to celebrate the victory of local cancer survivors during the Survivors Lap; remember those who are fighting cancer or those have lost their battle to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony; and participate in the Fight Back Ceremony, which gives everyone a chance to proclaim his or her own way of taking action against the disease.
Donations can be made to this local Relay For Life event by visiting RelayForLife.org/ClawsonMI. Community members also can start or join a team by following the links to their local Relay event.
