Relay For Life in conjunction with the American Cancer Society is a community fundraising event that raises money for the fight against cancer. The event raises awareness and support for cancer survivors, those currently fighting cancer, and an opportunity to remember loved ones who were victims of cancer. Relay For Life events are held in more than 5,000 locations in over twenty different countries each year.
Teams of 10-15 people are built for each Relay For Life event. The event is a walk for cancer, where for 6-24 hours team members take turns walking the designated track throughout the duration of the event. Each team must have one member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps and to encourage patients to not stop fighting. Anyone can build a team and join the Key Scales Ford family for the event. Consumers can learn more about building a team, joining a team, or donating to the event at the Relay For Life website: www.relayforlife.org.
Key Scales Ford will be sponsoring Team Tyrin in this years event. Tyrin is related to a Key Scales Ford employee, his mom used to work at Key Scales Ford before his diagnosis, his aunt and step-grandmother still work for this Leesburg, Florida Ford dealership. Tyrin had medulloblastoma that was removed in 2010 when it was found, and he has been in remission for 6 years. The Key Scales Ford family is honored to support this brave young man in his fight.
Dealer principle of Key Scales Ford, Harriet Scales says, “This event hits close to home for us. We are always looking for ways to support our community, but this event lets us support not just our community, but one of our valued staff members, her family and an amazing young man. We appreciate our employees, customers, and community; and always want to show our support whenever possible.”
Each year 1 in 3 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with a form of cancer. When consumers participate in Relay For Life, they are helping the American Cancer Society fund life-saving cancer research, fight for life-saving policy changes, and providing support to cancer patients and their families all while helping to spread cancer prevention and education information.
