Relay For Life of Northborough/Southborough information night

Northborough – The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Northborough/Southborough will have an informational night for local volunteers and participants Tuesday, Dec. 11,? at 7 p.m., at the Algonquin Regional High School auditorium, 79 Bartlett St. The meeting is open to anyone interested in volunteering for or participating in the 2013 Relay, which will be the 10th anniversary of the event.

Last year's Relay raised more than $65,000 as 44 teams comprised of more than 500 local residents joined together in the fight against cancer.

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

For more information or to become involved in the Relay, contact Katie Hafner at 508-270-4642, or Katie.hafner@cancer.org.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, the ACS fights for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.

The ACS saves lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation's largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.4 billion. As a result, more than 14 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.

To learn more about us or to get help, call the ACS anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org.
