Shira: Relay for Life is one of many great organizations that support research for cancer! Cancer has had an impact on my family, so I wanted to do something in honor of my family. Relay is a fun way to raise money. The event is fun because it is filled with activities so people want to go because it is fun and it raises money. We are raising money until April 3rd, and you can donate at this web address:
