Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event. It happens annually in the Southshore area at Lennard High School or East Bay High School.
Relay For Life Testimonial:
''There was laughter and there were tears. There were kids playing football. We spoke to a husband whose young wife had just been diagnosed with advanced breast cancer two weeks ago, and with the family of a young woman who lost her life to cancer two years ago after a battle of about 10 years long. We stopped at the raffle booth where the teachers and staff from a local elementary school were raffling gift baskets.But the stars in the sky last night were the survivors who walked the first lap around the track to continuing applause, and the caregivers, and the supporters. Everyone was there because they wanted to be there, everyone was there because they needed to be there, to hope, to share, to celebrate, to mourn. All in a place that for one evening was a special place. This is what community is all about.''
