The American Cancer Society will host 10 Relay For Life events in the Tennessee River Valley in the Spring of 2013. Relay For Life is a community-based, volunteer-driven event where community members unite to celebrate cancer survivors, remember lost loved ones and fight back against a disease that affects so many.

Funds raised through Relay For Life support the American Cancer Society’s mission to create a world with more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

To get involved in Relay For Life, visit to find the Relay For Life event taking place in your community, or contact the American Cancer Society at 256-536-1863.
