The American Cancer Society and Northeast Ohio Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants have teamed up to fight cancer on Wednesday, April 5, 2017.  Buffalo Wild Wings will donate 20% of total food sales from the entire day on April 5 from 21 participating locations to the American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay For Life.  In 2016, through this event, Buffalo Wild Wings raised more than $20,000 for the American Cancer Society in a single day.

 “With help from generous companies like Buffalo Wild Wings, we are able to provide free information and support for people facing cancer today and fund research that will help protect future generations,” said Lindsay Winkler, Relay For Life Senior Manager for the American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to end cancer, uniting communities across the globe to fight back against this disease. Teams camp out at local schools, parks, or fairgrounds and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team has at least one representative on the track at all times and raises funds to support the Society’s lifesaving mission in the months leading up to the event. In 2016, four million people participated in more than 6,000 events worldwide. This year’s Relay For Life of     Stow-Munroe Falls-Hudson will be held Saturday, June 10 at Stow Glen Retirement Village campus.  Visit relayforlife.org/stowhudson for more information about this year’s Relay For Life event.

“At a Relay For Life event it is inspirational to see people from all parts of our community come out to support us and help save lives from cancer,” said Winkler. “Together, we will celebrate those surviving cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take tangible action to make a difference.”
