Register your team today by visiting relayforlife.org/cullmanal or by calling 800-227-2345.
Former and current cancer patients, those who have lost a loved one to cancer, families, businesses, faith based and civic organizations, and anyone wanting to make a difference in the fight against cancer are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from 7 p.m. on May 3 until 7 a.m. May 4 at Cullman County Fairgrounds.
Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and faith-based groups all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
