In our ongo­ing series of folks who help with this mon­th’s Relay for Life, this week we hear from Car­rie about “Why I Relay”:

Vol­un­teer­ing as the publicity/marketing chair this year gives me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to help the many peo­ple who are great­ly affect­ed by can­cer. All of us have been affect­ed by can­cer in one way or anoth­er, and I believe if we all do some­thing, no mat­ter how small, we can make a huge difference.

As I par­tic­i­pate in Relay, I will be think­ing of my Grand­pa Lar­ry, who lost his bat­tle to mul­ti­ple myelo­ma, a rare form of bone can­cer. Relay for Life allows our com­mu­ni­ty to not only raise mon­ey for can­cer research and ser­vices, but also be a part of some­thing that matters!

If you’d like to help pro­mote Relay for Life this year or have cre­ative mar­ket­ing ideas, email me at or call me at
