Now is the time to commit to the Relay For Life

Just as the effects of a challenging economy are felt by families in every community, cancer too has a far-reaching impact. No matter how the stock market is performing or what the current unemployment rate may be, there are still many people battling a cancer diagnosis and many others who are lending support alongside loved ones every day.

These realities make the dollars donated and volunteer hours devoted to the American Cancer Society critically important.

Plans are underway for the 2014 Relay For Life of Central and South Maui on June 28 at the War Memorial Complex. The money raised at Relay enables the American Cancer Society to deliver on its mission of helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures and fighting back against this disease.

Now is the time for individuals, families, community groups, corporations and small businesses to commit to Relay For Life team participation. Join us at this event to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember those lost, fight back against this disease and help the American Cancer Society realize its vision of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

To learn how to form a team, participate or to volunteer, call the local ACS office at 244-5554 or go to
