The Relay for Life Team will rally once again under the banner of curing cancer to kick off their 2010 campaign on Sunday, Sept. 13. Cancer survivor Mike Kessler is looking forward to a rewarding year and is encouraging the community to be involved like never before to support this worthy cause.

The kick-off for this year's theme "Lights, Camera, Cure!" campaign will be at 3 p.m. The City of Conyers has been gracious enough to allow the American Cancer Society the use of the Pavilion in Olde Town for this grand event.

"At the launching of this campaign on Sunday, we will be energizing the crew of 20 committees, also known as the stage hands, for the ‘Lights, Camera, Cure 2010 Relay for Life' which will be held again at the Conyers Georgia International Horse Park on April 23 and 24 in 2010," said Kessler, who is also heading public relations for the campaign.

As an event, the Relay For Life creates a sense of community by bringing people together in a moving and fun atmosphere, with sufficient time for cultivating relationships. The event is volunteer-driven, with America Cancer Society staff coaching the volunteers. There is a true partnership between volunteers and staff.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an international movement to end cancer. Since 1996, the Society has partnered with multiple cancer organizations in countries outside the United States to license and support Relay For Life programs. Through Relay For Life, these organizations bring together passionate volunteers, promote their mission-based activities, and mobilize community members to take action in the fight against cancer. International Relay For Life events are now held in communities spanning 19 countries outside of the United States.
