The American Cancer Society urges local companies to take up the fight against cancer in their communities by becoming sponsors of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Moniteau County. Cancer touches the lives of everyone, and involvement in this event is a great way to demonstrate that a company cares. Sponsorships can be tailored to a company's ability to give. Sponsorship opportunities start at $125 Sign Sponsor to $750 Platinum Sponsor, with recognition in the Relay Program and Opening Ceremony, yard signs along the track and on the commemorative event t-shirt. Corporate Sponsors can donate money or goods (such as food) for the participants, or even contribute money in exchange for recognition at the event. “We would like to encourage local businesses to support in the fight against cancer by sponsoring the Relay,” said Rae Ann Shackleford, Event Chair. “Their sponsorship ultimately helps our community by funding the Society Programs and Services vital to our citizens. I invite our local and area businesses to form teams, fundraise and participate in the Relay.” If you would like to become a corporate sponsor or find out how to build a team for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Moniteau County, contact Shackleford at 573-796-3139 or visit www.RelayForLife.org/moniteaucomo.
