VERO BEACH -- Last year, the Relay for Life of the Beaches celebrated with more than 90 cancer survivors at its seventh annual event.
The American Cancer Society is celebrating 100 years in 2013 and the committee's goal is to honor 100 or more cancer survivors at this year's Relay.
To achieve this goal, the planning committee is extending an invitation to all cancer survivors to come to Relay for Life of the Beaches and participate in the survivor activities that include a free dinner reception for all survivors and their caregivers following the special Survivor's Lap scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. May 3 in Riverside Park in Vero Beach.
Relay for Life is a great way for people to meet other cancer survivors in their own community. In many communities, survivors form their own teams or join existing teams. They also frequently volunteer for the American Cancer Society.
Cancer survivors are invited to sign up now at www.relayforlife.org/beachesfl or calling Theresa Woodson at (772) 562-2272- Ext. 2403.
