In communities throughout Pennsylvania, people are gathering together to help fight cancer at a unique event called Relay For Life. Relay is the American Cancer Society's national signature activity that brings together teams of families and friends from local companies, schools, clubs and organizations to walk around the track in relay fashion

All proceeds raised from this event are used for cancer research, education, prevention, and patient services. Similarly, the event provides a wonderful venue for the promotion and delivery of cancer control activities, including advocacy, prevention and early detection education. It is not too late to participate, as Relay For Life is always looking for volunteers.

For more information on volunteering or joining a team, please contact Danielle Crouthamel at 570-840-1204. Visit their website at or join them on Facebook at Relay For Life of the Greater Lake Region Group.
