American Cancer Society Relay for Life sponsored by Delta


Help Fight Cancer at Relay for Life
Dear Freedom Center Supporter,
Most of us, including myself, know someone impacted by cancer. Our founding sponsor of the MI Freedom Center, Delta, has teamed up with the American Cancer Society to fight back against this terrible disease. In support of this fight, they are hosting a Relay for Life at DTW on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.

We at the Freedom Center have a choice to join them in this fight. In fact, we have formed a team of Freedom Center volunteers along with myself called the Freedom Fighters to participate in this event. If you would like to join us, please click the button below.
Mary O'Hara has graciously volunteered to lead our team. Will you join her?
