Many ask: “Where does that money go?” Relay For Life events worldwide provide almost 50 percent of the operating income for the American Cancer Society. Cancer research is the number one use of the money raised. The money raised also provides cancer patients rides to and from their treatments, and more than a million people have had their questions answered and concerns addressed when they called the 24-Hour Cancer Hotline at 1-800-227-2345. And more than 25 million people have found the information they needed when they visited cancer.org.
On a local scale, these services are available right here in the Santa Clarita Valley. The ACS has an office located in the Industrial Center that is staffed almost 100 percent by volunteers. It offers a menu of support services from free wigs to rides to doctor appointments for SCV residents.
Make one of the largest Relay For Life events in the world part of your plans the weekend of May 19 and 20. Put on your mouse ears, grab your light saber and get ready to have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious experience.
