American Cancer Society Relay for Life

As some of you may know, both of my grandparents passed away last year in 2005 from various types of cancer. My sorority in which I am an alumnae member will be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. This is the second year of participation.

The event raises money towards cancer research and treatment by asking each team to raise $100 per participant, and the event itself helps support the moral of current and recovering cancer patients and helps remember cancer victims.

In short, it's a big deal and a big commitment, but it's for a really great cause as cancer affects everybody, either personally or through somebody we know. Please make a general team donation online.

We would greatly appreciate any amount. Five dollars here and there adds up, so if you can spare a few dollars, please do so. Also consider that any amount you donate brings us closer to our goal, which helps us as busy college students trying to spare our rare time for a worthwhile cause. Please help me help the Active members achieve this goal.

It is a tax deductible donation, and you can donate in memory, honor, or support of any individual if you would like to do so.

Thanks so much!

Ms. M
