We all know someone whose life has been touched by cancer. This year SearchAmelia.com is fighting cancer through Relay For Life Fernandina Beach/Yulee. (Find us on facebook.)
We have been posting articles and local events on SearchAmelia since 2008 and we hope you will join us by showing your support for our efforts by making a donation to Relay for Life — big or small — toward our fundraising goal.
Relay For Life will be held at Main Beach this year in Fernandina, from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. This year’s theme is Hope Around the World and SearchAmelia has selected Kenya as our country to represent. Because cancer knows no boundries, Kenya also hosts their own Relay for Life events and our booth and its costumes and decorations hope to bring a bit of Kenya to Amelia Island. Other teams are selecting other countries like China, New Zealand and England.
There will be several bands performing, other live entertainment, themed laps, an activities zone for the children and much, much more.
The Relay movement gives everyone an opportunity to come together to honor cancer survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and raise funds.
The American Cancer Society is putting your donation dollars to work now, investing in groundbreaking cancer research and providing free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers. With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer we’re fighting for every birthday!
As a volunteer on the committee, I will be putting the exciting details together for a press release to be published next week. But, in the mean time, we ask you to please join our team and make a small donation!
