Many options for corporate sponsorship are available, including forming a team at one or more local events, providing in-kind donations of goods, encouraging employees to volunteer at events and collecting donations at places of business.
“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising activity that has become a global phenomenon,” said Ginny St. Onge, specialist for the society’s Relay For Life of Cobb County. “Everything we do at Relay For Life contributes to reducing cancer mortality and incidences, whether it’s raising dollars to support free patient programs and research, or volunteering to commit to advocacy and education efforts — we’re all a part of the fight and we need the community’s help.”
Former and current cancer patients, those who have lost a loved one to cancer, families, businesses, faith-based and civic organizations are invited to take part in this team activity. Relay For Life of Cobb County is an overnight event taking place at Jim Miller Park beginning May 2 with an opening ceremony at 7 p.m. and ending May 3 with closing ceremony at 7 a.m.
