Hundreds of people from around the Southfield community showed their support for the American Cancer Society as part of its Relay for Life event featuring corporate professionals, area students and residents on September 10. The event was held at Lawrence Technological University and also serves as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

At Relay for Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against such a terrible disease. The funds raised can help make a difference in the fight against cancer – as any of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors nationwide can attest.

The Relay for Life in Southfield included various activities such as running and walking outdoors on the Lawrence Tech campus. This was an ideal event for Southfield to be a part of given all the healthcare employers that are located within the city’s limits and the DDA’s borders. We were pleased to see many of our DDA healthcare stakeholders at this year’s Relay for Life and look forward to another successful event in 2015.
