Relay For Life is our nation's largest overnight, 24-hour, non-profit walk event. This Year's Relay is themed "Celebrating, Remembering and Fighting Back thru the Decades." It marks the 9th year at Palmerton. All Relayers, survivors, and caregivers are encouraged to attend. Our goal is for every Relayer to bring a friend and introduce them to Relay. There are lots of ways to get involved.

This year's Relay For Life at Palmerton will be held on May 22-May 23 from 10 a.m. to 10 a.m.

ACS Income Specialist Caylan Chanwik is new to the Palmerton area event. She shares her thoughts to all local participants: "Each and every Relay For Life participant and American Cancer Society volunteer makes a difference. I very much look forward to working with all of you, and I hope that you will help to make this year the most successful yet in the fight against cancer."
