2013 National & Great West Division Relay For Life Awards

Recognition isn't just a "good thing to do." It's a critical component in how we acknowledge, value, and thank volunteers for their time and commitment to making a difference, and to finishing the fight. While no award can adequately recognize all that Relay volunteers achieve in their efforts to eliminate cancer, the Society offers the Nationwide Awards and Recognition program as a tribute to some of its' most outstanding participants, teams, and events. These winners represent the very essence of what it means to be a Relay For Life volunteer and a community that takes up the fight! Click here to see the winners!
