Relay For Life of Greater Valparaiso

Relay For Life of Greater Valparaiso What is Relay For Life? Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay.
(7)

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 o

f life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. To participate, form a team, or dedicate a luminary at your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life, please call (219) 510-7666 or visit http://www.relayforlife.org/valpoin. 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.

Hi everyone! We hope this email finds everyone doing their best during the covid shutdown. As you may have heard, we have had to postpone our Relay event to a future date that we are working on securing now.......BUT.....We are going to do a VIRTUAL Relay and have a Virtual Relay week starting May 31 and leading up to a Virtual 5K on our previously scheduled Relay date of June 5.

A few of the things we want to focus on is our TEAMS- who have worked so hard, SURVIVORS who we need to celebrate, SPONSORS who so generously give to us, and NEVER FORGET our MISSION- Why do we do what we do

Here is the schedule of our Virtual Relay week:

Sunday, May 31....meet your ELT. There will be videos of the elt posting throughout the day talking about their position, why they Relay, and how you can get in touch with them. A do not miss as They should be quite creative.

Monday June 1.....Teams.....Team captains and members....we will post your videos throughout the day. Send us videos telling us how or why your teams were formed, how long you have relayed, and anything else that let's us get to know you.

Tuesday, June 2....survivors....let's celebrate our survivors. These videos will be posted throughout the day. Tell us your story or the story of your loved one.

Wednesday, June 3....sponsors.....videos from our sponsors will be posting throughout the day. Let's make sure we thank them for their generosity.

Thursday, June 4....missions....we will be posting videos about or missions and why it is so important for funding for these. If you would like to help and do a video for a mission please contact Laurel.

AND

Friday, June 5....its our Virtual 5k. Anyone can participate. Post a video of you out walking in purple or relay gear. You can be with your team or by yourself. Make a $20 donation to your personal fundraising page stating 5K so we can keep track and a small participation prize will be

Waiting for you at the next meeting that we are able to have in person.

We need your help and participation to make this virtual week a success. Please send us your videos before the scheduled day so we can make sure we can get them posted and tag everyone appropriately. We also need you to watch the videos others have made and make comments. Let's all interact just like we are at Relay!

Marilyn's Bakery pies are set to be picked up! We will see you at Willowcreek Middle School to pick them up on Wednesday, May 6th.

Todd will be reaching out to you if you ordered to remind you. But please make sure you arrange to have someone pick up the pies between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. We will be at Door B waiting to give you your delicious desserts.

What a great treat you can drop off (with no contact, of course) for your friends and family who ordered to enjoy on Mother's Day!

It's . Cancer didn't isolate, like we were asked to do. So cancer patients still need help. And there will still be a Relay this year. But until then, please think of donating to our event to help us help cancer patients and their caregivers: http://www.relayforlife.org/portagein.

There are many ways that you can be a part of Giving Tuesday Now besides just donating. Here are a great list of them: https://now.givingtuesday.org/ideas/.

Please use today to find a way to give. Your time, efforts, talents, money, or even just a thank you to those who have been working so hard these last few weeks.

It's not about how much we give, but how much love we put into giving. And we love relay.

This weekend the American Cancer Society in Indiana is having a "Weekend of Hope". Cancer patients are one of the highest at-risk groups impacted by COVID-19. They may also be dealing with loneliness, changes in their treatment plan, and more. They need our support. ACS is asking everyone for their support of cancer patients across Indiana during our "Weekend of Hope". Whatever you do this weekend, take a pic and post it on social media using the hashtag . You can do a sidewalk chalk drawing, decorate your windows, or whatever works for you. If you would like a bag decorated and displayed, you can either make a donation to me or make a donation on your own Relay page and let me know. I will put it out this weekend.
Please Donate to
