Over the past few years, I have seen my mother-in-law and my dad struggle with cancer. My mother-in-law won her battle, but my dad did not. That's why I've decided to take action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® event right here in Centennial.
The picture on the left is of my son, Rio and the luminaria that we lit in honor of my Dad at last year’s Relay for Life. Relay For Life is an overnight event that brings our community together to help support the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The Society works hard every day to prevent cancer and save lives by supporting groundbreaking research, affecting public policies that protect us from cancer, and educating people on how to prevent or detect cancer early. The Society helps people with cancer right here in our own community.
And our efforts at Relay For Life can help the American Cancer Society to keep working toward a cancer-free future.
I want to invite you to show your support in the ongoing fight against cancer by joining us for this year's event.
Centennial’s Relay for life will be at Arapahoe High School (Arapahoe and Dry Creek) this Friday (June 12th). We hope to see you there! Some key event times are: Opening Ceremony/Survivor’s Lap is at 6pm on Friday; Luminaria Ceremony is at 9pm; Closing Ceremony is at 8am on Saturday.
If you can't join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!
