Paint Hawaii Purple

American Cancer Society Hawaii
November 01, 2016

As the American Cancer Society Relay For Life marks 31 years of bringing hope to communities nationwide, volunteers from all over the world have an opportunity to celebrate the progress we’ve made in the fight against cancer. Whether you’re a donor, team member, team captain or a part of our Relay committee, your contributions have made a significant impact on the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work. 

In the 31 years since Dr. Gordy Klatt first ran on a track in Tacoma, Washington to make a statement about cancer awareness, the Relay movement has grown to include more than 3.5 million people around the world. Relay For Life brings communities together to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and inspire everyone to fight back. As we mark this milestone, we want to celebrate the role Relay For Life volunteers have played in the fight against cancer. We are asking the community to Paint Hawaii Purple October 31 - November 6 in order to visually depict how Relay For Life brings hope.  Let’s demonstrate our passion and resolve to end this disease!
