Welcome New Members
Member of the Week
Our Member of the Week for week March 12-16, 2018 is Relay for Life Portage. Portage is celebrating its 22nd year hosting Relay For Life on June 8th and 9th. Relay For Life® is a fun-filled overnight event designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer in our community. At the event, we celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society in its mission to save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back. During the event, teams of people will gather at Willowcreek Middle School in Portage and take turns walking or running laps.
But, Relay is much more than a walk around a track. It is a time to remember those lost to cancer and celebrate those who have survived. It is a night for people who have shared the same experience to comfort and console one another. During this event, we honor survivors during the Survivors Lap and we remember those we lost to cancer during the Luminaria Ceremony. We also celebrate life, friendship, and a chance to work together toward a cancer-free future. Most importantly, Relay gives you the power to help in the fight against cancer. By joining together as volunteers and donors, our efforts help the American Cancer Society strive toward a future where cancer doesn’t take the lives of our friends and family.
If you or someone you know might be interested in joining us this year on June 8th and 9th please call Patti at 219-508-2029, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to our next team captains meeting at Willowcreek Middle School on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00. We are inviting Survivors and Caregivers to be our guests at dinner and looking for new teams to join us in showing our support. Sign up today to become a part of the Relay phenomenon. Together we will fuel the work – and the hope – that can help make a cancer-free future a reality.
