The team at Alford Home Solutions is excited to announce our participation in this upcoming's year's American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Kanawha County! Several of our team members have had to hear the words "You have cancer" and we realize that many of our customers have as well, so we decided to join the fight in the world's largest movement against cancer.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.
The American Cancer Society 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.
Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. It's a life-changing experience. At Relay, every person in the community has a chance to celebrate, remember, and fight back. And every person who participates joins others around the globe as part of this worldwide movement to end cancer.
Cancer is indiscriminate and knows no boundaries. Relay is a moving celebration of cancer survivorship. The event begins with a Survivors Lap in which cancer survivors take a victory lap around the track. A candlelight ceremony is held later in the evening to honor cancer survivors and remember those who we've lost to this disease.
Throughout the next several months, our team will be participating in several fundraisers and activities for the Relay For Life of Kanawha County. With your help, we aren't just fighting one type of cancer - we are fighting for every person threatened by cancer in our community.
