Relay for Life is an organized, overnight community fundraising walk. Teams of people camp out around a track, and members of each team take turns walking around the track. Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie. It is a family-friendly environment for the entire community that raises funds for the American Cancer Society. This year, Primerica’s theme was “Sowing Seeds of Hope and Cultivating a Cure.”
Primerica organized 15 teams from the employees at their international headquarters. The teams designed interesting and profitable fundraisers over the months preceding the big event. Various raffles, the annual tricycle race, Picnic on the Patio, a fish fry, Cookies by the Pound, the St. Patrick’s Day Brunch, and numerous bake sales and auctions helped the teams to garner donations. While there are still donations to be counted, Primerica’s contribution to the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Relay for Life will exceed $80,000.
