Relay for Life

Want to give back and have fun doing it? Try Relay for Life - the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event.

The relay is unique in that it offers an opportunity for communities to take up the fight against cancer in a fun atmosphere where participants set up campsites, and enjoy food and entertainment. Relay is an overnight celebration where teams of 8 -15 people take turns walking, jogging or running relay-style around a track throughout the day and night.

In 2008, more than 4700 communities across the United States, and in 25 different countries, will host their own unique Relay For Life event honoring cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. The Relay For Life of Arlington is set for June 21-22, 2008 at Wakefield High School.

The annual kickoff has just been set for Tuesday, February 5, beginning at 7:00pm at Chevy's Restaurant in Ballston Common Mall. During this hour-long gathering, old and new participants will learn important details about the upcoming year's Relay For Life event, will meet the new event leadership team, and will hear about all of our volunteer opportunities.
