Davis Islands Kicks Off Relay For Life 2011
DAVIS ISLANDS, TAMPA: Relay For Life of Davis Islands is an annual community event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society. Although Relay Day is six months away, planning is already in full swing. Last year, Davis Islanders raised over $62,000 for the American Cancer Society, providing needed funds for cancer research grants, services such as Tampa’s Hope Lodge, and programs such as Road to Recovery®. This year’s goal is to field 30 teams to celebrate cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost on April 15, 2011.
To learn more about how the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is helping millions of people in our community and worldwide to fight back against cancer, attend the upcoming Kick Off Party on October 19, 2010. Enjoy a gorgeous evening at the Davis Islands Yacht Club with food, cocktails and some memorable experiences. Hear Paul B. Jacobsen, Ph.D., speak about his experiences as an American Cancer Society grant recipient and grant reviewer, watch the short film made by Marc Dahl and Jennifer Malin about last year’s Relay For Life of Davis Islands, and learn about how you can get involved with Relay For Life of Davis Islands 2011.
