LUDLOW, Vt. – The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Windsor County kicks off its new fundraising season. Join us on Feb. 24, 2018, from 4-7 p.m., at the Ice House at Okemo Mountain Resort, 111 Jackson Gore Rd. in Ludlow, Vt. The community is invited to come out and learn more about the Relay For Life movement and how they can help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event to save lives from cancer. At Relay For Life events, participants celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Together, we can beat our biggest rival.
During the Skate Into Relay, community members will have the opportunity to register a team for the Relay For Life event, which will be held on June 23, 2018 at 4 p.m.-midnight, 13 Fairground Rd. in Springfield, Vt. Registration assistance begins at 4 p.m. in the Ice House warming area.
The whole family is welcome to attend Skate Into Relay. Opening ceremony starts at 4:30 p.m. and highlights Margaret Bingham, local cancer survivor of 21 years. Enter the raffle to win a Burton Trick Pony snowboard. The proceeds from unlimited skating entries benefit the Relay For Life of Windsor County. Skates are available for rent. Join the fun!
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.
