Relay for Life Abilene Facebook

Pretty much all of us have been affected by cancer; by battling it or knowing someone who has. There are many ways we can aid in the battle against cancer and one of those ways is Relay for Life.

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

Basically, it's a relay style of event that lasts overnight. Teams are assembled as fundraising groups and members of each team take turns to walk around the track throughout the night. Obviously, there is a bit more to it, so if you need full details then head on over to the Relay For Life website.
