Lockport Relay for Life
SATURDAY, JUNE 18TH
2pm TO 12am
EMMET BELKNAP INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL

Relay For Life is a fun-filled event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs for the American Cancer Society.


Cancer has touched many of us in some way, so we decided to fight back by raising funds and walking in our local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event.

As a team, we are taking action to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem. At our Relay event, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in their lifesaving mission.

Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time.
