Beating our biggest rival takes more than breakthrough research. It takes things like our 24/7 cancer help line and free rides to chemo treatments. By joining the Relay For Life movement in our community, we can all help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle.
Volunteers for the American Cancer Society will be hosting the 21st annual Culpeper Relay For Life event on Saturday, June 2 beginning at 4:00 p.m. and ending at 7:00 a.m. on June 3rd. In the previous 20 years through the hard work and generosity of those volunteers, Culpeper has raised over $3 million to help fight the battle against cancer.
Never attended a Relay For Life event in Culpeper? You’ve missed seeing cancer survivors in a sea of purple leading the first lap of the event. You’ve missed seeing people from the Culpeper community having fun, walking laps, and remembering those who we have lost to cancer plus celebrating those who are winning their battle against it. Survivors are also honored on Friday, June 1 at the Survivor Dinner at the Germanna Daniel Technology Center at 6:00 p.m. You can join us to celebrate and remember loved ones at our always touching luminaria ceremony around 9:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Looking for a personal challenge? Consider the Endurance Walk, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The endurance walkers stay on the track throughout the night with ten minute breaks each hour. The Endurance Walk ends at 7:00 a.m. More information is available online in the forms section at our website: RelayForLife.org/culpeperva . Not up for twelve straight hours of walking? How about a 5k at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday? Love to win things? We have many opportunities for that as well. Lots will be going on throughout the event.
