Northwest Allen County Schools will be holding their first annual Relay For Life in support of the American Cancer Society on Saturday, May 6th from 3 PM until 10 PM at Carroll Middle School.
Relay For Life is an American Cancer Society fundraiser to raise funds to provide research grants to universities, provide support to patients/caregivers by answering questions, provide money for hotels before surgeries, and by providing rides to treatments. The goal for NACS Chargers Fighting Cancer is to raise $30,000, much of which will be raised ahead of time.
Relay For Life is a day of Celebration and HOPE. Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around the track. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Teams/Individuals will walk the track from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm on May 6th. There will be opening & closing ceremonies, a survivor & caregiver dinner, a luminary ceremony, events to honor survivors & remember those who have passed away, and a dance for middle & high school students. There will be concessions, food-trucks, a bouncy house, games, special laps, and contests throughout the night. A DJ will provide dance music from 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM to end the celebration.
