Relay For Life

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.

The 2014 Isle of Wright Relay for Life will be held May 31st at Westside. Please join us!

Isle of Wight/Surry Relay For Life Survivors Banquet is a important part of this event. This year’s banquet is Tuesday, May 27th at the Smithfield Center. Invitations will be mailed to our registered Cancer Survivors and a guest to join us for this special evening. Catering will be provided by The Virginia Diner. Please encourage all Cancer Survivors you know to register with Isle of Wight/Surry Relay For Life through the web site This will be a special time of celebration!
