“We did it!  Congratulations to the Relay for Life of Newport News, York-Poquson on an incredible relay!

 Thank you for providing your time, talents, and heart to our mission.  Through your generosity we Painted our World Purple and are creating a world with more birthdays.

 A million words of gratitude to our Event Leadership team, our ACs staff partner, all of our teams, participants and our fantastic sponsors.

 Even though the event itself is over, Relay Season does not end until August 31.  Teams can continue to fundraise to help us in the fight to end cancer.  You can donate online and have a summer fundraiser.  Don’t forget the Car Raffle is still going on – you can pick up tickets at the ACS office.

 Just as important – you can contact our committee or the ACS staff partner to join our Event Leadership Team and get more involved with the planning of next year’s event.

 Again, thank you!
