OXFORD – Walkers, cancer survivors, community leaders, team captains and dedicated workers are needed to help plan the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Oxford Hills, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 2 and 3, at the Don Gouin Athletic Field.

Relay for Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society. It is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

Relay for Life is as much an awareness-raiser about the progress against cancer as it is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Teams of eight to 15 members will gather with tents and sleeping bags to join with more than 4,000 communities nationwide that sponsor relays. Relay for Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and churches. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the relay, all with the goal of eliminating cancer.

Volunteers are needed to form teams, seek community support, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend their support.

For more information about the Relay for Life of Oxford Hills or to volunteer, contact Tracey Frye at 743-7326 or Joelle Corey McDaniels at 743-5754. For more information on cancer, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or visit www.cancer.org.
