Relay For Life of Fulton County to Hold February Team Captain Meeting
FULTON, Ky. – The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Fulton County invites team captains to the monthly team captain meeting scheduled for Monday, Feb. 24, at 5:30 p.m. at Seven Coffee on Lake Street in Fulton.
This monthly meeting will provide the team captains the opportunity to interact with the event committee, share fundraising ideas and ask any questions they have concerning the Relay For Life event, scheduled for June 6, from 6 p.m.-midnight, at Pontotoc Park.
Team captains lead a team of around 8-15 members who share the passion for defeating cancer and creating a world with more birthdays. These team captains are responsible for organizing their team’s fundraising and participation in other activities regarding Relay For Life.
Teams can represent businesses, schools, churches, civic groups, friends and families who come together to celebrate those who have survived their cancer diagnosis, remember those loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer, and pledge to finish the fight.
All of the funds raised from Relay For Life support the American Cancer Society’s mission to help people stay well through education on cancer prevention and early detection; by helping them get well through programs and services provided and connecting patients and caregivers to available resources; by finding cures through funding research grants at places like Vanderbilt University Medical Center and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; and by fighting back through advocacy and by rallying Fulton County – including Fulton, Hickman, and South Fulton – together to fight this disease that will be diagnosed in an estimated 25,000 Kentuckians and more than 36,000 Tennesseans this year.
