Did your American Cancer Society Relay for Life event get canceled this year? So did ours. That’s why we’re inviting you to join our virtual, participate-from-home SAL Relay Day on Saturday, April 25.
Get ready by joining your chapter’s RFL team or the SAL national team. Then start raising funds and awareness on social media and the ACS FUNdraising App. If you’re feeling extra connected to this cause, you can design purple survivor and white caregiver sashes for your loved ones, decorate luminaria, cheer for your favorite team in the RFL Gaming Tournament, or start your own #LaptopLipSync Challenge in support of ACS. Here are a few more ideas from the Relay for Life organizers. Try to submit your total donation to your team’s RFL page by 4 pm EST on April 25, but the ACS will continue to accept contributions after that time.
When SAL Relay Day rolls around on April 25, you’ll be all set to connect with SAL members across the country who will be counting their miles on the Charity Miles app. Track your steps on a treadmill or get outside for a bicycle ride, walk, or run if that’s safe in your community. Consider bringing your dog or volunteering to walk a neighbor’s pup. Wear your SAL RFL “Slugging Out Cancer” t-shirt or print out your own personalized “Why I Relay…” race bib. Bonus brownie points if your pets wear a SAL shirt or race bib, too! Set up your luminaria. Take lots of pictures and submit them to [email protected] and tag #SigmaAlphaLambda and #SALRelayDay on your chapter’s and SAL’s Facebook and Instagram feeds.
That afternoon, go to Relay USA on Facebook between 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm EST on April 25 for a live virtual Relay For Life ceremony. You’ll get to be part of the opening ceremony, including survivors and caregivers recognition and team shout outs. The event will conclude with a virtual luminaria presentation. Be ready to upload your photos.
We look forward to reconnecting with all of you online on SAL Relay Day!
