Will you help ‘Pack the Track’ to win?

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life movement unites millions of people around the world to fight every cancer in every community by raising funds to support the society’s lifesaving mission.

The only way we can finish the fight against cancer is by continuing to rally the troops and pack the track at our Relay For Life events. As a leader in this fight, we hope you will join us in the challenge to continue to grow this movement.

On Monday the American Cancer Society has challenged Relay events across the nation in encouraging their communities to take up the fight and join the movement through the 2015 Pack The Track Challenge.

The relay event with the largest percentage of growth in participants signed up online between Jan. 26 and Feb. 3 will win a prize — Relay For Life cowbells and thunder sticks for all participants.

Help spread the word by talking to everyone you know, and share this amazing opportunity to be a part of the world’s largest movement to end cancer. Reach out to your teammates — past and present — and to your family, friends, and coworkers to let them know how they can participate in your local Relay For Life event by joining your team.

We announced the challenge to all 2015 online participants on Monday so please go online to www.relayforlife.org and register today to join a team or form a team, let’s win this challenge in your community.

Thank you for being a team captain and or a part of your community in the commitment to finishing the fight against cancer.
