Serving as a sponsor of local Relay For Life events provides a great opportunity for CEC to demonstrate its commitment to community. The co-op not only provides financial support to this worthy cause, but many CEC employees volunteer each year to organize a Relay team and participate in the event. In 2016, CEC employees raised approximately $10,700 to help support the vital efforts of the American Cancer Society.

The Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fund-raising activity. During the Relay, team members take turns walking around a track. Anyone who wants to attend the Relay and help celebrate survivorship can take part in fun-filled activities and share the spirit of uniting in the war against cancer. Money raised from the event benefits valuable cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services.

This year, the CEC Relay For Life team is hosting a Fishing For A Cure Bass Tournament on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Point A Park. The cost is $100 per team (2 person) with a 5 fish limit and minimum 12" per fish. First boats out at safe light and weigh-in is at 3 p.m. Please click on the fishing tournament flyer here for more details. You can download a registration form by clicking here.

Our team will also host the annual Relay For Life Golf Tournament on Monday, April 17, 2017. Please click here for more details on that event.
