This annual event is one of a number of activities held in support of the American Cancer Society’s battle against cancer. Montgomery County’s Relay For Life event will be held on May 20, at the Hilldale Baptist Family Life Center, at 250 Old Farmers Road, to mark the end of the fundraising campaign.

Relay For Life, the world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, mobilizes communities throughout the country to fight back against the disease. The event brings together individuals to further the American Cancer Society’s vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
