American Cancer Society & Presenting Sponsor Navicent Health Lead the Fight for a World Without Cancer Through Relay For Life of Bibb County Event

On Friday, April 26, over 2,000 participants and supporters will join together at the annual Relay For Life of Bibb County at Central City Park in Macon to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. The event starts at 6:00 pm.

""We are so excited to have Navicent Health as our presenting sponsor for the second consecutive year. Navicent Health is a great partner in the fight against cancer and very supportive of the programs and service of the American Cancer Society,"" said Debbie Kitchens and Paul Dale, MD, cochairs of the 2019 Relay For Life

""Navicent Health is committed to improving the health and wellness of each individual in the communities we serve, and that includes leading the fight against cancer. Together with partners like the American Cancer Society and the countless supporters who will gather for Relay for Life, we can and will win the fight against this disease,"" said Tom Oliver, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, Navicent Health.

The American Cancer Society is dedicated to the cause of fighting cancer on every front; standing shoulder to shoulder with cancer patients and those supporting them. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer - from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.

Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer, the event can last up to 24 hours and empowers communities to take a stand against cancer.

In addition to the support of the community, Relay For Life of Bibb County is also largely supported by this year's Presenting sponsor, Navicent Health.
