UC Relay for Life is back again!

Hello Family and Friends :)

I am back at this again this year! I am hoping to raise $3,000 with my team and bring us a few steps further in finding a cure for cancer.

This year, I am helping save lives from cancer by taking part in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life Event, and I’m hoping you will help by supporting me.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a life-changing event that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out on the University of Cincinnati campus and take turns walking or running around a path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

In addition to helping people celebrate, remember, and fight back, Relay For Life® also helps raise much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.

Please support me in my efforts by visiting my personal web page to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation at

Every donation really does make a difference. I know that times are tighter than normal for many of us, but any amount you can give truly can help save lives. Just $5 gets us one step closer to the exciting goal of a cure!

Thanks to your support, the American Cancer Society can:

  • Help people stay well by helping them take steps to prevent cancer or detect it early, when it’s most treatable
  • Help people get well by being in their corner around the clock to guide them through every step of their cancer experience
  • Find cures by funding groundbreaking research that helps us understand cancer’s causes, determine how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it
  • Fight back by working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight

Each of us has our own reasons for caring about the fight against cancer … whatever your reasons, I hope you’ll choose to make a difference by making a donation online to support my efforts. I’m so grateful to have people like you in my life who want to see an end to cancer in our lifetime as much as I do. Together we can save lives.
