WHY HOST A MUSIC FESTIVAL?
In 2016 in the U.S., there will be an estimated 1,685,210 new cancer cases and 595,690 cancer deaths. That’s approximately 4,620 new cancer cases and 1,630 deaths each day.
TO FUND RESEARCH AND SAVE LIVES.
RelayLIVE is dedicated to reducing these numbers through cancer research and patient programs. Though the event is free, we encourage attendees to fundraise individually or in teams to support our efforts (and gain access to exclusive event perks).
Since 1991, the American Cancer Society has contributed decreasing the US Cancer Death rate by 22%. That is more than 1.5 million lives saved. ACS has also funded cutting-edge research of many notable scientists, 47 who have gone on to win the noble prize. More than $4.3 billion has been invested into research since 1946, and in the state of Tennessee more than $6.6 million is currently invested in research grants.
