PERRY COUNTY – The American Cancer Society urges local businesses to help support the fight against cancer in their communities by becoming sponsors of Relay For Life. Cancer touches everyone, and in-volvement in Relay For Life is a great way for companies to demonstrate their commitment to help the American Cancer Society save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, organizers said.
Many options for corporate sponsorship are available, including forming a team at one or more local events; providing in-kind donations of goods; purchasing event sponsor signs for track display; encouraging employees to volunteer at events; and collecting donations at places of business.
“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon,” Deann Bryant, sponsorship chair, said. “Everything we do at Relay For Life contributes to reducing cancer mortality and incidences, whether it’s raising dollars that support free patient programs and services, research or volunteering to commit to advocacy and education efforts – we’re all a part of the fight and we need the community’s help.”
In Perry County and more than 5,200 other communities around the globe, Relay For Life unites people to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. Relay for Life, the world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, continues to grow as tens of thousands of people will participate in Relay events across Indiana.
