Relay For Life is an overnight event where teams of local businesses, schools, churches, community groups and families build awareness and raise funds - prior to and at the event - to fight cancer. While the main objective of Relay For Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event helps spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer and unite a community in the fight against cancer.

This year's American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Barrington will be held June 7 Barrington High School. Teams have already started forming and begun raising funds. Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, secure community support, coordinate logistics, obtain refreshments and prizes, assist with publicity and plan entertainment activities for this exciting and energizing event.

For more information on the Relay For Life kick-off celebration, contact the American Cancer Society at 847-368-1166 or visit Relayforlife.org/barringtonil. Teams may register on-line anytime.
