Hobe Sound, Fla. Residents Get Ready for Relay for Life
Date:4/14/2013

JUPITER, FL (PRWEB) April 14, 2013

The American Cancer Society is looking for a few good volunteers who have homes in Martin County, or are leaders in the community, or serve as caregivers, to join Relay for Life in downtown Hobe Sound on April 20, 2013. The national nonprofit organization also is seeking cancer survivors, or anyone who wants to make a difference in the fight against the disease, to participate in the signature fundraising event.

Relay for Life events annually take place all over the United States overnight, with individual and team walkers and runners camping out at athletic tracks, parks or other public gathering areas. The goal is to keep at least one team member in the relay the entire evening.

In Hobe Sound, participants will gather at noon on Old Dixie Highway in the heart of the city. The event will run until 6 a.m. April 21.

“The Relay for Life is all about our community uniting with the American Cancer Society and supporting its efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Charlene Oakowsky, a Relay for Life of South Martin County volunteer. “Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let south Martin County know that cancer can be defeated.”

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities encourages owners of Hobe Sound property to support the cause and raise proceeds for the organizations research efforts and patient programs. Each relayer is asked to commit to raise $100. While most of the fundraising takes place prior to the event, participants are invited to come up with creative ways to generate even more proceeds at their campsites during the 18-hour Relay for Life.

Chairs of the 2013 Relay for Life of South Martin County are Tom and Rhonda Balling, Hobe Sound residents who live near Osprey Cove.

“Relay for Life is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those we’ve lost and fight back against the disease,” Tom Balling said. “Many of the participants are cancer survivors, which serves as a reminder that the south Martin County community is not immune to this disease, and that by participating in Relay, we are joining with the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.”
