American Cancer Society and Berks County Lead the Fight for a World Without Cancer Through Relay For Life Event
On June 21 and 22, 2019, over 1000 participants will join together at the annual Relay For Life of Western Berks at Wilson West Middle School, 450 Faust Road, Sinking Spring, PA 19608 to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. The event starts at 2:00 PM and runs for 22 hours.
“Relay For Life rallies communities to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and raise funds to eliminate cancer. Lasting overnight as team members take turns walking around a track, Relay inspires, entertains and touches the hearts of all who participate.” says Event Co-Lead Tina Wiatrowski.
The American Cancer Society is the cause fighting cancer on every front; standing shoulder to shoulder with cancer patients and those supporting them. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.
Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer, the event can last up to 24 hours and empowers communities to take a stand against cancer.
In addition to the support of the community, Relay For Life of Western Berks is also supported by many local businesses and organizations. This year’s sponsors include: Diamond Credit Union, Penn National Gaming, Edwards Business Systems and a number of other local partners.
