moss employees raise $3600 in relay for life

About 45 employees of Dr. W.O. Moss Regional Medical Center participating in the Relay for Life collected over $3600.00 in donations, directly benefiting the American Cancer Society. All locally raised funds will remain in the community.  Used for research, the funding also supports efforts to manage and cure cancer. 

Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity and offers the entire community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. With relays running overnight, groups camped out at a local high school, park, or fairground so that their representatives could take turns walking or running around a track. The twenty-four hour event required the presence of each group’s representative on the track at all times.  

The teams consisted of people from all walks of life, who had fun and raised much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of its prevention and treatment.

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem through research, education, advocacy, and service. The American Cancer society hopes to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering.
