Karnes County — the local American Cancer Society Relay For Life continues the search for volunteers to join the Planning Committee and is also on the hunt for new and returning teams for the 2014 event. They are hosting a meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at the Karnes City Public Library to share with residents the importance of Relay For Life in the fight against cancer.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones, and raise money for the fight against cancer. Relay For Life raises awareness about the progress against cancer while also raising funds to continue fighting the disease.

Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event (as a volunteer or participant) make a commitment to fight back against cancer and let the community know that cancer can be beat. Relay For Life - the largest fund raising walk in the nation - unites friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, and churches, people from all walks of life, all with the goal of supporting a cure for cancer.

Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, seek community support, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend their support in any way.

If you would like more informational about this meeting, volunteer on the Relay For Life committee or serve as a team captain, contact John at 210-557-9185. For more information on cancer, call the American Cancer Society’s 24 hour help line at 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in ground breaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
