Relay For Life around the corner


“Because cancer never sleeps, Relays have been overnight events up to 24 hours in length in the past.” Wells said. “The committee is very excited about the 2014 relay event because of the new time, and we are hoping that with the new time from 6 p.m. to midnight that we can get more people to stay until the end.”

For those wishing to participate, RFL's website recommends making a list of potential donors. Once a list is complete, letters and emails should be sent out, asking family and friends to help. As a way to break the ice with potential donors, RFL also recommends participants donate whatever they choose and to ask contributors to match the price.

Individuals wanting to fundraise as a team can get as creative as they want. RFL suggests baby-sitting, movie nights, garage sales, dinners or car washes as a few examples.

With the constant change in technology, donating is becoming easier each day. Participants can download the RFL App, placing everything they need for the fundraiser at the tips of their fingers. Donors can go online and give directly to the specific participants, teams or events.

Additionally, there is an option to make a general donation to RFL.

“Thanks to Relay participants, we are creating a world with more birthdays – a world where cancer can't claim another year of anyone's life,” Wells said.

For more information or to RSVP for the dinner, contact Christy Graham at 940-745-1217 or jcgraham27@hotmail.com or contact Wells at 940-452-2813 or kwells_relayforlife@yahoo.com. To sign up for the 2014 PPC RFL or to donate, visit www.relayforlife.org/palopintocotx.
