BRILLION – American Cancer Society is calling on all community members to participate in the annual Relay For Life of Calumet County-Brillion on Friday, June 14th at the Brillion Elementary Middle School. Be part of the fight, and together we can beat our biggest rival. American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers to form teams and stand shoulder to shoulder with us and cancer patients and those supporting them.
Participants united for the annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Calumet County-Brillion to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event to save lives from cancer.
Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.
