Relay for Life June 13-14

Brooke Melton and Nicole Roland of Relay for Life

Brooke Melton and Nicole Roland spoke to Greenfield Kiwanis about Relay for Life which will be held June 13 and 14 at Greenfield Central High School.  The relay funds 80% of the needs of the American Cancer Society.

The Relay includes a Survivor’s Lap, Luminaire Ceremony, and food and games in a family friendly environment.  The funds raised are used to fund cancer research.  The American Cancer Society is the largest non-governmental funder in the United State.  Road to Recovery® which provided cancer patients with transportation to and from treatments is also funded by the Relay.  Look Good…Feel Better®, another program funded by relay, teaches women battling cancer beauty techniques to help them improve their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Last year, Relay for Life – Greenfield raised over $75,000.  The goal for 2014 is $85,000.  To become involved as a sponsor, volunteer, or survivor see
