Marco Island did it again! For the third consecutive year, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Marco Island has placed first in fundraising in the state of Florida!
The Relay For Life, a signature event of the American Cancer Society, is a community based global movement in the fight against cancer. Although it is a team event, it is not an athletic competition. “Relay,” as it is nicknamed, is a celebration of life. The only race it involves is the race to find a cure and eliminate cancer from our world. Sounds like a job for Superheroes, doesn’t it?! For the past three years, the community of Marco Island has proven itself to be the home of Superheroes in the Relay For Life.
In 2020, we plan to do it again! On February 22, 2020 we will be bringing Relay to the people of Marco Island in the very place that is so Marco Island – the beach! Our theme will empower the very spirit of Marco Island – We are Superheroes!
Please join us November 19, 2019 from 5:30-7 PM at the Marco Island Brewery, 1089 N. Collier Blvd. in the Marco Town Center Mall, for the Kickoff Celebration of the 2020 Relay For Life of Marco Island. Come and learn how you can be a Superhero in the fight against cancer! Join a team or better yet, start one of your own!
For more information and to RSVP for Kickoff, please contact your American Cancer Society at 239-642-6217 or Sue.Olszak@cancer.org.
