Community Service is my middle name… By: Trey “Community Service” Monroe • Relay for Life is a Great way to serve the community. • All the money raised by Relay For Life is donated to the American Cancer Association. What Is Relay For Life? • Relay is a “race” of sorts that honors those who have had cancer and try and help find a cure for those with cancer. • Website www.relayforlife.org How does the fundraiser raise money? • The way relay for life works is, organizations such as Freshmen Year Experience get a team together to try and raise money. They come up with fun ideas such as a Tie Dying tent to try and raise money for the team. The FYE team is charging a certain amount for each shirt we dye. People donate money according to how many laps a member runs. For example if I asked my dad’s company to donate money he would say we will give you 100 dollars to run a mile. Important? • I believe that serving my community betters myself and the others around me. • My aunt died of cancer when I was young so the Relay For Life fundraiser was right up my alley. • I have also had a friend diagnosed with breast cancer just last year. FYE • I was on the FYE team our theme was Hanging Cancer Out to Dry. Laundry Theme • We had a work day of cutting out poster board in the shape of clothing for decorating the tent.
