GOOSE CREEK, S.C.–On Saturday, May 6th, local residents will join together at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Lower Berkeley at Stratford High School to raise funds and awareness in an effort to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer. The event starts at noon and continue until midnight.
Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. Uniting communities across the globe, we celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change.
During Relay For Life events, members of each team take turns walking or running around the track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.
Funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Society has invested more than $4.3 billion in research since 1946, and have funded more than 20,000 scientists at more than 1,000 institutions nationwide.
In addition to the support of the community, Relay For Life of Lower Berkeley is also supported by many local businesses and organizations. This year’s top sponsors include: Nucor Berkeley, Southern Scrapbookers, Goose Creek Property Management, and Shirley Padgett State Farm.
