The American Cancer Society of Fayette County and the Relay for Life Organizing Committee are searching for local cancer survivors who would like to participate in the 2010 Relay For Life of Fayette County and the annual pre-event Survivor Dinner.
Relay For Life is an annual fundraiser and the signature event of the American Cancer Society. The purpose of the rally is to raise money to fund research and development towards patient treatment, cancer prevention, and to help find a cure for cancer. At Relay teams of 10 – 15 people join together to raise money through pledges, or selling merchandise or food during the night long walking event.
Relay For Life is also about honoring some very important VIP’s; local residents who have survived cancer. Relay For Life is an event that helps survivors feel part of a very special community and celebrating life with them. Cancer survivors are treated as honored guests at Relay and are the guests of honor at a Survivor’s Dinner which is sponsored by Piedmont Fayette Hospital. This year’s Survivor Dinner will be held Friday, April 23th at the New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville.
Ellen Hester will be the motivational speaker at this year’s Survivor Dinner. Ellen is known for her unique and humorous presentations, often done in character. Attendees of the Survivor dinner are sure to be enthusiastically energized and entertained by Ms. Hester.
Survivors can register to attend Relay For Life on-line at www.relayforlife.org/fayettecounty. Follow the Survivor/Caregiver link under Event Information. Invitations to the Survivor Dinner will be mailed to all registered Survivors. Registration forms are also available at the Fayette County American Cancer Society (ACS) office located at 301 Kelly Drive, Suite 3, Peachtree City.
