Bowling Green, Ohio – On Saturday May 19, 2018, Over 300 participants will join together at the annual Relay For Life of Wood County at the Wood County Fairgrounds to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. The event starts at 11 am.
The American Cancer Society is the cause fighting cancer on every front; standing shoulder to shoulder with cancer patients and those supporting them. Last year, 2.7 million participants in the U.S. raised more than $279 million at more than 3,500 events to help beat our biggest rival. 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.
Join us at the Relay For Life of Wood County this year by coming out and supporting all of cancer survivors and their caregivers by cheering them on during our Opening Ceremony at 11am. Visit all of our amazing Relay For Life teams and support their fundraising efforts, there are a lot of great things out at Relay for everyone! Donate $10 to the event and you can get a luminaria bag that will line the track in memory of or in honor of a loved one, then join us for this very touching ceremony around 9pm.
