The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And they won’t stop until we finish the fight against cancer!

So far, nearly $200,000 has been raised to fight cancer, but much more needs to be raised!  Geek Alabama will be out there taking plenty of pictures and videos of this event!  Look for the pictures and videos on Monday!  See you tonight at Lamar Field!
