The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Cerro Gordo County invites you to join in the fight against cancer throughout the month of June as we celebrate, remember, and fight back to a disease that has taken too much from too many. We are seeking 500 Cerro Gordo County residents to pledge a suggested $10 or a free will donation to help us raise $5000 toward life saving research. Cancer affects 1 in 3 of us and you never know whose life you are impacting when you join in the fight.
Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the United States. The unfortunate truth is that 48 people hear the words “You have cancer” in Iowa everyday. We want to lower that number by increasing awareness, education, prevention, and leveraging life saving research. Beating cancer takes all of us.
Due to COVID-19 we aren’t able to safely hold our traditional award winning fundraising event and concert this year. But Cancer hasn’t stopped , so neither can we.
You can participate in the fight against cancer in a multitude of ways. To learn more follow our Facebook page “The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Cerro Gordo County” or visit cancer.org.
Thanks to passionate Relayers like you and advancements in research and treatment, death rates from cancer have dropped 27% since 1991 - which means more than 2.6 million lives saved! You never know whose life you are touching by contributing to the fight against cancer. Help us finish the fight by joining and/or making a donation today. Together we are tougher than cancer and stronger together.
Cancer hasn't stopped, and neither will we.
