The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world's largest and most impacting fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. With the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 500 lives a day. Please join us and take action against a disease that has taken too much! 

Cancer continues to affect the lives of everyday people here in Southeastern, NC. All of us know someone that has been touched by Cancer – a family member, a neighbor, someone at work or a friend and maybe even a fellow runner. The American Cancer Society’s goal is to have more people survive cancer so they can celebrate another birthday. 

What a major accomplishment for our Club. Not only can we compete in any cross country meet, but we can pull together and raise a HUGE amount of money for a very worthy cause. Cancer touches us all. Only by working together will we finish the fight. Thanks in advance to all who participated and all for their generous donations.

Wilmington Road Runners Club will have a tent set up for the event with food and drinks and a place to gather. Come and plan your workout on the track. You don’t have to stay for the whole event, pick a time and come out and run with us during that time and then you are done. Last year we had some members that covered 13.1 miles or more. We need your help. 

For those that participate and raise money you will get Grand Prix points and the satisfaction of supporting a very worthy cause just by running around the track. Please consider joining us or donating today!
