American Cancer Society: Relay For Life
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event that gives communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
At the Relay, each team camps out at Mansfield High School track, taking turns participating throughout the 24-hour event. Since cancer never sleeps, neither do the participants by having at least 1 team member walking the track at all times.
For the past 11 years, NECI and its employees have proudly sponsored this event by contributing over $65K in donations. In 2009, our team was able to achieve Silver status by raising more than $8K. In 2010, we again surpassed our previous efforts, raising over $10K in donations.
