Teams need to sign-up for Moniteau County Relay for Life

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's national signature overnight fundraising activity where teams gather with tents and sleeping bags to participate in the largest fundraising walk in the nation. The annual event unites friends, family and members of the community, and people from all walks of life. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of supporting a cure for cancer.

Teams planning to participate in the 11th ACS Relay for Life of Moniteau County, which will be held June 17 at the Moniteau County Fairgrounds, California, are encouraged to sign-up early.

“By organizing early, teams have more time to raise money for the American Cancer Society,” Event Chairperson Rae Ann Shackleford said. “This year we are celebrating 'More Birthdays in Moniteau County,' so the whole community is invited to attend the largest birthday celebration of the year. Team campsites will be decorated to help celebrate with fundraising activities and plenty of good food. I'm hoping this will be one of our best year's and I'm excited to celebrate more birthdays in Moniteau County.”

The event is a fun-filled, overnight, life changing experience that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones, thank caregivers and empower others to fight a disease that takes too much.
