Letter to the Editor

As event co-leaders for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Clark County, Mandy Dunn and I would like to sincerely thank our community for its generosity and support. This year, 64 teams participated in the Relay For Life movement and raised over $200,000 so far to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. 

We were honored to welcome and celebrate the lives of 177 cancer survivors, who walked the opening lap and inspired us all. Our luminaria ceremony demonstrated the community’s warmth and strength in honoring survivors and those who are no longer with us.

We would also like to thank the Relay for Life event volunteer leadership team, team captains, and participants who worked so hard to make this year’s event a success. And of course, thank you to our corporate sponsors for their support, which made all of this possible.
