Relay for Life Corporate Sponsorships

by | Mar 14, 2013

Cancer. Just the word tends to make people cringe. It is difficult for any of us to think about cancer and not know a family or someone whose life has been touched by this horrible disease. Cancer touches the lives of everyone, and we here at TopSpot are proud to do what we can to fuel the fight against cancer. For the last three years, we’ve participated in Relay for Life, a national fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

What is Relay for Life?

Relay For Life is an event designed to celebrate survivorship, remember loved ones lost, and raise money to support the American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer as a major health threat. TopSpot holds fun events in and outside the office to raise money and set up camp overnight, taking turns walking around a track for 12 hours to raise awareness for cancer. Last year, TopSpot raised over $25,000 and was the leading fundraising team for our event (see pictures here and here and here).

Why do we Relay?

In the last fiscal year, the American Cancer Society has provided:

  • $148 million toward cancer research
  • $280 million toward patient support
  • $150 million toward prevention information/education
  • $103 million toward detection and treatment

This year’s event will be April 5th at Rice University.

Please take a look at our Corporate Sponsor Levels below; we would appreciate your support with an online donation toward our fundraising goal of $20,000.
