On May 13, 2016, the “EPES AVENGERS“ team attended the Greensboro, NC Relay for Life led by the American Cancer Society. During a Relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they’ve overcome and also recognize and celebrate caregivers who give time, love, and support to their friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers facing cancer. They remember those lost to the disease and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer. The Epes team exceeded its goal of raising $2,000 during this event. It raised $2,090.
