1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. One of those people could be you or someone you love. When you join a Relay For Life event, you're helping the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking research, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention information. When you Relay, you help save lives.
In DeKalb County, the 21st annual Relay for Life is scheduled for Friday, May 11 at Greenbrook Park in Smithville. The program will be held from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. with entertainment, an opening ceremony, a survivors walk around the walking trail in the park, and a luminaria ceremony. Come enjoy lots of entertainment including music, games, food and more all in an effort to raise money to fight cancer
Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give of their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer.

By selflessly devoting your time and energy through raising awareness and money, you become the voice of the American Cancer Society in your community.
