Relay for Life!

Please come and support our Relay for Life team.

WHEN?
Relay for Life is May 17th at 6pm – May 18th at 8am. 100% of the money raised at Relay for Life goes towards cancer research and the support services that ACS provides. If you want to read more about ACS, visit www.cancer.org.
HOW TO JOIN THE TEAM
Visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/bapakp and click on the orange button, on the right side, that says “Join our Team”. (As a bonus, if you still need BAP community service hours, you can get up to 10 hours by participating in Relay for Life). There is a $20 registration fee, but 100% of that $20 goes straight to ACS and cancer research. You must register to attend Relay for Life.
FUNDRAISING 
Once you have joined the team, you can visit my personal fundraising page (http://main.acsevents.org/goto/deanielind) and use my story as an example to personalize your fundraising page.
There are four ways that you can help fundraise!
1. Send a support letter to friends and family. I have attached the support letter that I sent to my friends and family explaining what I am doing, why I am walking, and how they can help me reach my fundraising goal – you can use my letter as an example.

2. Ask people to donate a luminaria bag. As night falls during Relay for Life, the walkways are decorated with personalized bags lit by a candle in memory of those who are at different stages in their fight. This is a beautiful way to see how many lives have been touched by cancer. Ask people: How have you been touched by cancer? Has someone close to you been taken by cancer? (I will have an example of a luminaria bag at the next BAP meeting)

3. Advertise on facebook using your facebook states and the link to our fundraising page (http://main.acsevents.org/goto/bapakp).
4. On Monday, April 29th, Papa’s Pizza Parlor here in Corvallis is donating 50% of the evening’s sales to Relay for Life. All you have to do is bring the flyer (attached) and write in “BAP & AKP” to the “Team” field. Tell your friends!! You can eat pizza AND help in the fight against cancer!!!
I will continue to pass around the hour sign in sheet at BAP meetings. Please sign up for an hour or two (or more if you’d like) so we can make sure to have at least one representative from our team walking at all times.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! Email (lindel@onid.orst.edu) or text/call (206-498-5546) me. Also, let me know if you have any other fundraising ideas!!
