What can one person do to fight cancer?
Ask one of the 2 million people working in communities like Harlan County to reduce the threat of cancer and you may get the following answer: Participate in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
Last year, more than 4,200 communities nationwide participated in Relay For Life and raised more than $300 million, making the event the largest fund-raiser in the U.S.
Relay For Life is an overnight fund-raising event filled with activities, fun and community spirit. All funds raised at Relay For Life support American Cancer Society programs designed to reduce cancer incidence and mortality through research, education, advocacy and patient services.
For more information about participating in Relay For Life, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345, www.cancer.org or Mark Bell at 573-8208.
Harlan County's Relay for Life is scheduled for Friday at Huff Park.
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem.
