The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of East Kendall is just around the corner. Register your team today by going online to www.RelayForLife.org/EKFL or calling Nurdes Gomez, Team Development Chair, at 786-596-2206. This “celebration of life” brings the Miami community together in a unified effort to fight cancer.
Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations, and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from 12 PM on March 19th until 7 AM on March 20th at Baptist Hospital’s Lakeside, 8900 N Kendall Drive. Relay for Life is an overnight experience where teams gather to celebrate cancer survivors, listen to live music, play games, and fundraise for cancer research and cancer care programs.
Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities around the nation to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer. Teams of eight to 15 members gather with tents, play games, watch live performances and participate in the largest fundraising walk in the nation.
“The funds raised through our Relay For Life events enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy and patient services,” added Yomayra Mora, American Cancer Society Staff Partner. “Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers and donors, the money raised by Relay For Life participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”
