Katy/West Houston Celebrates More Birthdays in Overnight Event

Save the Date! Join us on March 22nd at 7pm as we fight back against cancer!

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and empower others to fight back against cancer. Teams gather with tents and sleeping bags to participate in the largest fundraising walk in the nation. The event begins with a cancer survivors lap celebrating those who have survived cancer or who are currently battling cancer.  Games, music, and live entertainment encourage people all through the night.  Some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during Relay.

 “The funds raised through our Relay For Life event enables us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back,” added Mike Dailey, Relay For Life of Katy/West Houston Event Chair. “Due to the generosity of our volunteers and donors, the money raised by Relay For Life participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”

 Information about how to form a team or become involved in Relay For Life is available at www.relayforlife.org/katytx.  For more information on cancer, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit the Web site www.cancer.org.
