Attorneys Dell & Schaefer are proud to support The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Pembroke Pines taking place on April 23rd, 2010. Relay For Life, offers every person in the community a chance to recognize those who have defeated cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease by raising much needed funds.
During Relay For Life, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington, ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since then, Relay has grown from a single man’s passion to fight cancer into the world’s largest movement to end the disease.
Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with participants in 20 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.
This year our office manager and her daughter, Taiylor Rodriguez and her dance troupe Dancers Gallery, Dancers 4 Cancer, will be participating in the Relay For Life. We wish them luck during this 24 hour event.
