Sunrise Dental is sponsoring the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life East Wake team.
The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is one of the largest fundraising events to end cancer. It brings together communities, and celebrates people who have battled cancer, people remembering loved ones, and people taking a stand to fight cancer.
Since its beginning in 1985, Relay for Life has raised nearly $5 billion dollars. Money raised at Relay for Life events are given to support cancer research, recovery groups and Hope Lodge, a facility that provides free accommodations to patients and their families.
Sunrise Dental is proud to support Relay for Life, as dentists can sometimes be the first to notice signs of illness, including cancers. Dental conditions such as tooth decay, tongue discoloration and salivation issues can be indicators of a more serious health problem, leading patients to see a primary care physician for more information.
The Relay for Life of East Wake’s event will be held May 8, 2015 – May 9, 2015 from 6 PM to 6 AM at Five County Stadium in Zebulon, NC. So far there are 20 teams and 500 participants signed up. The event will begin with the Opening Ceremony, with the Survivors Lap and Caregivers Lap to follow.
