Relay for Life

Relay for Life of Garrett County United

Goal $50,000

The American Cancer Society is suspending all events through June in response to COVID-19. The Event Leadership Team, along with the American Cancer Society staff, has made the difficult but responsible decision to cancel our 2020 Relay For Life event that was scheduled for June 13, 2020 to prioritize the health and safety of our volunteers, staff and participants. Cancer hasn't stopped. So neither have we! Please consider donating to help us continue our programs and services for cancer patients and their families. The NHS Teams just want everyone to know, any luminarias purchased, donations made or sponsorships will all be recognized at next year's event. We truly appreciate your support!

The goal of The American Cancer Society (ACS) is to provide more funding to their programs, services, and research. Garrett County has one combined Relay for Life event to work together to maximize the fundraising for this great and important cause. Contact Jordan Furstenberg for more information. Every Dollar Makes a Difference. At Relay For Life no donation is too small, each and every dollar counts. Your donations help fund groundbreaking cancer research, patient care programs, and can make a difference in communities like ours. With every donation, you are helping the American Cancer Society save lives.
One reason we Relay is for those who have been impacted by cancer - everyone who’s faced it, fought it, and may now be living with it. The nearly 14.5 million cancer survivors living in the US today are at the heart of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life program.
If you would like to purchase a luminaria, please use this order form and return the form and money to your team captain or mail your form and money to the local Cumberland office at 1050 W. Industrial Blvd. Suite 3, Cumberland, MD 21502. Checks made payable to the American Cancer Society.
