The American Cancer Society for Relay movement is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer and Southern Motion is proud to be a long time supporter.

Southern Motion has been an active participant in Relay for Life since 2007 with a total fundraising effort of $574,814 so far.

With the help of Southern Motion and surrounding communities Relay fights for every birthday threatened by cancer and they are getting results.

With funds raised, the American Cancer Society is able to invest in groundbreaking research that helps better understand the causes of cancer, determine how best to prevent it and discover new ways to cure it.

Southern Motion believes in the importance of coming together as a community to make a difference. Each year they participate in Relay for Life events and fundraisers.

As the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research, Relay has played a role in nearly every cancer breakthrough in recent history. In 2013, they marked a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates since 1991 and funded 228 new research projects.

When Southern Motion's Relay For Life fundraising team raises $1,000, it helps identify a cancer-causing gene in DNA, so that Relay may stop cancer in patients or prevent the cancer from occurring.

Nowhere else can you make the greatest impact in the fight to end cancer than when you fundraise for the American Cancer Society through the Relay For Life event in your community.

Southern Motion is a "Presenting Sponsor" and has a team in the Relay for Life event each year in Pontotoc. This year's event will be Friday, April 24, 2015 at 6:00pm in the Pontotoc Courthouse Square.

Join Southern Motion as they take a stand with Relay for Life and fight the fight against cancer.
