The team at Memorial Plan joined with the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and fundraise for the American Cancer Society.

36 teams participated and raised $40,427 to fight cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States.

Why We Are Fundraising

Sonia Valdes, Director of Sales, lead a team of Memorial Plan staff at the "Relevo Por La Vida de Hialeah'.

"I participate because I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, I will help save lives from cancer."

It's overwhelming to think that millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. It might be someone close to us – or you or me...

A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join my community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and cancer awareness to help those facing the disease.

Relay participants, all raise funds because they have been affected by cancer in some way and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to fight back. This is my opportunity to honor the cancer survivors, remember friends and family, and help raise funds to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission.

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early, when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services to cancer patients throughout their journey. The organization is investing in crucial research to prevent, treat, and ultimately, cure all cancers.

Memorial Plan is committed to raising awareness to the most critical issues facing our community. Click here to learn more about Memorial Plan.
