The American Cancer Society invites all residents of Sussex, Delaware/West
to get involved in the fight against cancer. The Society needs volunteers
for its signature event, Relay For Life, which will be held on May

Volunteers are asked to form teams for the Relay For Life. A unique
community-based, overnight event, Relay For Life honors cancer survivors
and remembers those who lost the battle against cancer.
When Relay participants are not walking or sleeping, they have an
opportunity to enjoy a variety of games and entertainment and learn
about the progress being made against cancer.
All proceeds from Relay For Life benefit the American Cancer Society's
programs of research, patient services, prevention, advocacy, and
education. To form a Relay For Life team, contact the American Cancer
