Dress down and save lives on July 31

Companies all across Vermont will dress down on Tuesday, July 31 to fight back against cancer, a disease that will affect one in every three women and one in every two men in their lifetime. The American Cancer Society is inviting all Vermont businesses and their employees to take action to save lives by joining Vermont’s third annual Relay For Life Dress Down Day.

By donating $5 to the American Cancer Society, employees earn the chance to dress down at work for one day or wear purple—the color of Relay, an annual overnight signature event of the American Cancer Society—to remember or honor a loved one who has been touched by cancer.

For information about registering your worksite for Relay For Life Dress Down Day on July 31, contact Tanya Walker at your local American Cancer Society at Tanya.walker@cancer.org or 802-872-6314.
