02-25-2014 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #13


Title
Resolution in Support of Relay For Life

Discussion
The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is responsible for funding over $100 million in cancer research each year.  The Relay For Life events enhance community goodwill while raising funds for research, education, advocacy, and service.  Relay For Life events provide communities an opportunity to come together to celebrate those that have won their battle against cancer, remember those that have lost their courageous battle, and fight back against this horrible disease.

Relay For Life raises money to fight cancer, greatly increases community awareness of cancer, and stimulates a real sense of relationship and camaraderie among the participants.


Recommendation
Recommend support of the Relay For Life Days proclamation.
