All proceeds raised by Putt for a Cure will go directly to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the fight against cancer.

Relay For Life is a non-competitive, overnight event where teams are recruited from businesses, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches, schools and service organizations.

Each group chooses a team theme and members take turns walking or running around a track during the night.

Games and activities held during the event create a festive atmosphere. Money raised from the event supports the American Cancer Society’s local patient support programs, education programs, advocacy efforts and life-saving research program.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service.
