Relay For Life

There is something amazing happening on our community! It’s Relay for Life of Bethesda / Gwinnett and we would love for you to be a part of this. If you have ever wondered how, you can make a difference, then please join in our efforts to support the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. We know far too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. Chances are, you may know them too. That is why our Bethesda Relay for Life team is taking action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society. Cancer touches so many people in our community and Relay for Life is a great way to help fight this terrible disease. With heart and desire, we can have a cancer free world. We ask you to donate by volunteering at sponsored Relay events or by giving to fight this ongoing battle to find a cure for cancer within our lifetime to ensure a healthy future for our loved ones. Please go to My Payments Plus, Events & Activities, School Fundraiser then make your selection if you would like to donate. Thank you in advance for your support.
