New Beginnings for the Central Montana Relay for Life!

New beginnings, changes and adjustments have been a hallmark of the past 18 months. And so it has been with the Central Montana Relay for Life.  As with many other things, the COVID pandemic has also affected the rural Relay for Life programs, leaving the need for financial adjustments, budget changes, and the realignment of vision and goals. 

Locally, this means that our Relay for Life committee has also had to adjust.  With the national Relay funding shortfalls came the loss of our local Relay Representative and the subsequent cutback of support for our region. 

With this in mind, our Central Montana Relay committee made the decision to reshape it’s goals and adopt a new vision. We will continue our fight against cancers of all kinds and along with that, the committee is pleased and excited to invite you to join the first annual Cancer Colors Celebration!

Many of the traditions we know and love will still be included in the new event – the survivor celebration, the luminary ceremony, the silent auction and most importantly, the gathering of friends and family to honor our survivors and to remember those lost to cancer. 

The exciting and fun new addition to the event will be the Ice Cream Social!
Lots of treats and goodies are planned, so be sure to stay in touch!

As with the Relay, our mission of joining the fight against cancer will continue. 

The fundraising done throughout the year will, as always, be used to support this fight, however we will now be able to offer support both locally and nationally. 

A portion of the Cancer Colors Celebration’s fundraising proceeds will be used to support those fighting cancer in Central Montana through a donation to the Montana Cancer Screening Program.

A portion will continue to go to the American Cancer Society, whose mission we strongly support.  Without the ongoing cancer research and advancements in treatments that the ACS provides, we would not be able to celebrate the hopes and dreams of survivorship that we have today.
