Des Plaines Relay for Life Kick-off Event

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Des Plaines will hold its annual Kick-off event on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30 p.m. at Club Casa (353 North River Road, Des Plaines). Friends, neighbors, cancer survivors, caregivers and anyone interested in learning more about Relay For Life are encouraged to attend.

The Kick-off event offers information about the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives faster by helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures and fighting back. Light appetizers will be served during the Kick-off event.

Relay For Life is an overnight event where teams of local businesses, schools, churches, community groups and families build awareness and raise funds – prior to and at the event – to fight cancer. While the main objective of Relay For Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event helps spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer and unite a community in the fight against cancer.

This year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Des Plaines will be held June 27-28 at Maine West High School.

Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, secure community support, coordinate logistics, assist with accounting day of event, obtain refreshments and prizes, assist with publicity and plan entertainment activities for this exciting and energizing event.

For more information on the Relay For Life Kick-off celebration, contact the American Cancer Society at 847-368-1166 ext. 3 or visit http://www.relayforlife.org/desplainesil.

Teams may register on-line anytime.
