Agenda Item #12
Relay For Life Week
For more than ten years, Brevard Schools employees have proudly supported the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Relay For Life events in Brevard County. This support has been given gracious attention by school and site administrators in recent years through the proclamation of "Relay For Life Week" in Brevard Schools. During this week, staff are encouraged to implement and participate in various fundraising activities in support of ACS' mission of "eliminating cancer as a major health problem." Through education, advocacy, research, and services, ACS and Brevard Public Schools are making a difference in the lives of cancer survivors throughout our community, with more than seventy BPS-based teams taking part in Relay For Life events last year, raising more than $100,000.
Approve the resolution proclaiming March 6-10, 2017 as "Relay For Life Week" in Brevard Public Schools.
