When you participate in a Relay For Life event, you become a vital part of the American Cancer Society: a volunteer. You are now part of an organization of 3.5 million survivors, patients, advocates, volunteers, caregivers, and researchers doing everything within our power to save lives. By selflessly devoting your time and energy through raising awareness and money, you become the voice of the American Cancer Society in your community. It’s a big job. And its not one that we take for granted. Chautauqua Street Rats fulfilled our personal goal to save lives and celebrate life. Every day.
