Kick off celebration to be held Monday February 15th.

Calling all teams, calling all teams! Youre invited to a kick off celebration on Monday, February 15, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at Paynes Funeral Chapel in Memphis Missouri. This year we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Scotland County. Over the course of the last nine years, the Relay For Life of Scotland County has raised over $270,000 to help in the fight against cancer, while involving countless participants and survivors.

I feel honored to be a part of this uplifting event, said Diane Tague. I have made a personal commitment both to create awareness about the progress against cancer and help raise the funds necessary to continue the fight against the disease.

To RSVP to this kick-off, please contact event chairperson Diane Tague at 660-216-5083 or your American Cancer Society staff partner Brenda Carlin at 800-684-2733 or by email at brenda.carlin@cancer.org.

We would like everyone who has been involved with Relay For Life in the past nine years to come together for our 10th year celebration, said Tague.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life first started in May 1985, when Dr. Gordy Klatt took the first step of this 24-hour walk around the track in Tacoma, Wash., raising $27,000 to support the American Cancer Society. For more information on how you can get involved in Relay visit RelayForLife.org or call 1-800-227-2345.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
