Last year, the MC community led the way in coming together as a community to support the American Cancer Society.
In 2020, three communities joined together for the 10 Days of Relay and raised $50,610.
The MC’s, who pioneered the community concept, raised $25,927. The Bellisseria community worked together to raise $16,740 in their first year. And the GOR community joined together and raised $7,960 at their GOR Festival.
These significant accomplishments by three extraordinary communities were inadvertently not mentioned at our Relay 2020 Closing Ceremony.
The 10 Days of Relay was an incredible event with so many people participating in so many different ways. It has been instrumental in reaching new places and has enabled us to help people we would never have met without them.
As we look forward to our next Relay season, we see even more communities joining us in our fight for a world without cancer.
A sincere thank you for all that you accomplished and a big Relay For Life hug.
Well done to everyone that participated this year.
