2017 Relay For Life Of Polk County — June 3-4
is back at the Dallas High School Track
....and with it comes the opportunity to be a part of the largest worldwide fight against cancer! It’s no
coincidence that since the first Relay For Life over 30 years ago, the survivor rate has risen from 45%
to nearly 70%. In Oregon alone, millions of dollars are being invested in prevention and especially
treatments that are more personalized and thus more effective.
Sitting on the sidelines in Polk County is no longer an option. We can hope ~ or we can help through
our support of Relay For Life as a sponsor, a team member, or simply as a guest of the event. The
following sponsors are already on board for 2017. Now it’s your turn!
The deadline for submitting a sponsorship is April 15.
Please join me in thanking our 8 most recent sponsors of Relay For Life of Polk County:
