Clinton County Relay for Life is July 31
LOCK HAVEN- The American Cancer Society (ACS) Relay For Life of Clinton County will be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on July 31 at Riverview Park in Woodward Townshhip.
Due to the pandemic, Relay For Life events might look a little different, but the passion and commitment to fight cancer is unchanged.
“As we come together for this event, let’s rally together in the fight against cancer and make a difference,” said Roxanne Embick, co-Event Lead. “We envision a future where we no longer live with the threat of cancer. Unfortunately, that future is at risk and there is a mission urgency since COVID-19 forced the postponement of fundraising activities this past year. We want you to help us give hope the advantage for the future to be cancer free.”
Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Tacoma, Wash. more than 35 years ago, participants and volunteers across the world have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society conduct breakthrough research, provide 24/7 support for cancer patients and access to lifesaving screenings. We believe that there will be a future free from cancer.
“Fundraising through Relay For Life is more important than ever and we can’t allow progress to be put on hold because of the pandemic. Cancer won’t stop, and neither can we,” said Shanan Miller, co-event lead.
