Rockford Relay for Life coming up fast

The American Cancer Society (ACS) will hold its eighth annual Relay For Life at North Rockford Middle School athletic field on Friday, May 21 through Saturday, May 22, 2010. The Rockford Relay Committee is holding its second meeting for all team members, cancer survivors, and anyone interested in organizing or joining a team for the Relay on Thursday, March 11, at 6:30 p.m. at Wolverine World Wide Corporate Headquarters. (Doors open at 6 p.m.) Relay For Life of Rockford has raised more than 2.1 million dollars in the last seven years. It is a 24-hour fund raising activity benefiting the ACS’s programs and services. The event is hosted by the City of Rockford and the Rockford Public Schools.

The Relay For Life of Rockford committee has come up with a “Rockin’ Relay” theme for the 2010 event. We hope that our teams will incorporate music or a music-type theme into the tent decorations and team activities. The American Cancer Society offers hope and support for those diagnosed, and wants us to remember those who have succumbed to cancer.
