Relay for Life celebrates 10 years in Sherwood

Event set Aug. 2 and 3 at SHS


The Sherwood Relay for Life is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, and I would love for you to consider this your personal invitation to join us. We've all had someone in our lives, (or ourselves), that has been touched by cancer.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a community event to raise money for the fight against cancer, but it's also a community event that serves to remind us that we are all in this together, and no matter how busy we are in our everyday lives, we can all meet on Aug. 2 and 3 at the Sherwood High School track for 24 hours in the middle of our summer to celebrate the survivors, give hope to the fighters and remember the lost.

There are several ways to get involved: Form a team, join a team, or sign up as an individual. Fundraise. Sponsor the event. Come to Relay in August and have a great time.

If you are a survivor, we need you!

What better way to give hope to a cancer fighter than to encourage them to meet the survivors in their community? I know personally that just the knowledge that I am not alone is a comfort.

Todd and Leslie McCabe brought the Relay to Sherwood 10 years ago with the intention of helping to raise awareness in our community. Since then, there have been many different teams and individuals involved.

If you've been a past relayer, and missed a year or so, we'd love to have you back.

For those of you that have been Relaying for all 10 years, we salute you! There's still plenty of time left to form a team, sponsor the event, or sign on as an individual. Let's do this, Sherwood!  Rachel Schoening is owner of Fat Milo's Family Kitchen and a cancer fighter for 17 years.
