The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is a team fundraising event, in which members take turns walking the designated course for six to 24 hours, during which time each team keeps a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. As they say on their website, “Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.”
The Oslow County, North Carolina team “Furries for a Cure” started in 2012 with a team of four, and have in that time more than tripled in size, with members from as far away as Texas coming to join in the event.
The team’s next relay event in on April 21st in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The team’s goal is to raise $9,000. If you’d like to donate or get involved, visit the team’s web page.
