The 2013 American Cancer Society’s Phoenixville Relay for Life is in gear. Kick-off for the event will be held on Wednesday, September 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Petrucci’s Ice Cream – Water Ice, on Nutt Road. Come out and see what Relay is all about, and check out the opportunities available to serve on a committee. If you are interested in registering to be on a team, the first 50 people to register will receive a Relay gift.
This year will mark our 10th Anniversary. Event Co-Chairs are Jen Epps, Jean Garman and April Klotzbach. Our ACS Partner is Lindsey Koch.

What makes Relay for Life unique is the fact that it does not focus on just one type of cancer, but raises money to fight all types of cancer.
On Sunday, October 7, Bark for Life will take place at Reeves Park, starting at 12 noon. This is the canine version of Relay. It is a non-competitive walk for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. Last year, 125 dogs registered. You can register on the Bark for Life website, or you can register the day of the event. Join us for a fun filled day, starting with a walk in the park, followed by demonstrations, games, and contests for dogs dressed in costumes.

By supporting the Relay for Life and Bark for Life, you are helping to save lives, and helping us move closer to our ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
See you at the Relay Kick-off and at Bark for Life!
