NEW Big Sandy Relay For Life event set for Sept. 8
We are trying to spread the word about our NEW Relay For Life event and hope you can help! This year, with so many changes within the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life and community involvement, many counties have decided to forgo having a county/community event.
We did not want that to happen here, so we have joined forces to create one big regional event, ONE REGION – ONE REASON! Teams, members, survivors, caregivers, friends, family, loved ones from Floyd, Pike, Johnson, Martin, Magoffin, Lawrence and Letcher counties have been invited to join us.
We are still in the agenda planning stages for the night, but we have some things already nailed down.
There will be a cornhole tournament, jail and bail, duck pond game, minute to win it games, pie eating contest and more! We will also have some live entertainment, such as Troy Burchett, and an area for vendors to set up. Vendors are not charged a fee to set up, we just ask that they donate 10% of proceeds made that night back to our Relay event.
A final agenda will be released as soon as we have everything completely confirmed. I have attached a copy of our event poster and the sponsorship letter, as we are still looking for sponsors for the event as well. If you need further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your help,

JOIN US in Prestonsburg for the NEW Relay For Life of BIG SANDY for:
Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin, Lawrence, Letcher and Pike County.
One REGION – One REASON!
Cancer is something we simply cannot ignore. One in two men and one in three women are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. It is a terrible, destructive disease that impacts the lives of so many close to us.
Help us change the statistics by becoming an American Cancer Society Relay For Life sponsor. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. At Relay For Life events, we celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to help create a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer. This year’s event is bringing together people on September 8th!
As a sponsor for the event, your support allows the Society to help people facing the disease today, educate people about how to reduce their risk for cancer or detect it early when it’s the easiest to treat, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations. There are also many benefits for your organization. Sponsorship will allow your business to connect with community members in new and meaningful ways, increase brand recognition, and allow your employees to bond over a common cause.
Enclosed you will find information about our sponsorship opportunities for the Relay For Life of Big Sandy event. We hope you will join us as a sponsor in 2018.
