American Cancer Society
Holiday became involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life events in 2008 after Bill Colson, founder of Holiday Retirement, lost his battle with colon cancer. Since then, the company has had a strong presence in the Salem, Ore. Relay for Life event.
What is Relay for Life?
Relay for Life consists of teams camping out overnight and taking turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events last up to 24 hours and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
Although many fundraisers happen during the events, many Holiday communities, including our corporate offices, host fundraising events throughout the year in addition to participating in the Relay.
We’re proud to support The American Cancer Society in its mission to fund research programs and cancer education, as well as show compassion care for patients and their families. For more information, visit relayforlife.org or cancer.org.
