What is Relay For Life?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

North Country Dental participates in Relay For Life each year and has been proudly doing so for more than 15 years. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.

Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment.For more information about NCD’s Relay For Life Team, donating to the Team or participating, please call North Country Dental at 603-466-5015 Gorham or 603-733-5515 North Conway.

We need you!

Crafters are needed for our annual Craft Fair, which benefits Relay For Life.  All proceeds from the Craft Fair are donated to the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.  Register for our 8th Annual Craft Fair today!  Hurry, space is limited…registration deadline is November 1st, 2014!

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:

• Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.
• Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing.
• Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.

There is not a required amount of money to raise in order to participate in Relay For Life.  The American Cancer Society’s recommendation is for each participant to set a personal goal to raise $100.  If you raise more, that’s even better.  If you do not raise $100, you are still welcome to participate.  We’re glad to have you.  The only requirement to participate in Relay For Life is the $10 registration/commitment fee (per person) that is due upon registration.   After that, anything you can raise through individual, team, or online fundraising is graciously accepted.

No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay. To participate, form a team, or dedicate a luminaria at your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life, please call 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit http://www.cancer.org/.
