Members of Relay for Life of Faulkner County are eager to accept and process your team’s registration from 5 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, at the office of Anita K. Mize located off Oak Street at 33 MacArthur Dr. Teams from all corners of Faulkner County are already raising funds for cancer research and promoting awareness right in our neighborhoods. In Arkansas alone, 16,070 people were struck with the words "You have cancer" in 2011. The number of Arkansans who saw their final birthday last year because of cancer was 10,210. Of the people you pass throughout the day, friends and family, co-workers, and neighbors, 44 of them are diagnosed daily in Arkansas. Your community is actively fighting this disease through the American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay for Life.
The opportunities for involvement are endless. Teams large and small are using all methods of involvement, from forming a team, offering sponsorship, monetary donations, and donations of items or services to be auctioned during Relay. Show your commitment to a cure.
Teams and individuals can register completely online at www.relayforlife.org/faulkner, or gather some teammates and drop by the Quick Register event on Feb. 13.
