Letter to the Editor: Relay for Life

RelayForLife

To the Editor,

We have seen many changes take place in politics and our economy. However, one constant is that many people are battling cancer and many others are supporting their loved ones each and every day. These realities make dollars donated and hours volunteered to the American Cancer Society in Lamar and Southeastern Colorado so important.

Local volunteers are a huge part of the nationwide effort to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. But additional volunteers are needed to help finish the fight. Plans are underway for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Lamar, set for June 6, 2015 at Lamar Community Building and Savage Stadium.

Money raised at Relay For Life helps the mission of the American Cancer Society to help people stay well and get well, find cure, and fight back against cancer. Relay For Life supports the efforts of the Society, as well as programs for patients, including transportation assistance and free lodging at Hope Lodge facilities.

Relay For Life also makes it possible for the American Cancer Society to provide helpful information on cancer, treatments, support services, and more 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at 1-800-227-2345 and cancer.org.   Now is the time for Lamar and Southeastern Colorado individuals, families, groups, churches, and businesses to help finish the fight against cancer through Relay For Life. Celebrate survivors. Remember loved ones no longer here.

Pledge to fight back against this disease. Form a team and volunteer for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life today. Call 1-800-227-2345 or visit RelayForLife.org for more information about local opportunities. You may also call Sherri Kerr, local Event lead at 719-336-3855 or contact her at sherrikerravon@yahoo.com
