Relay For Life

B.A.C. Consulting, Inc. and ArriveTech are proud to have participated in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life”. This annual event raises funds in an effort to fight all types of cancer. One of the goals of this event is to increase awareness in the community of various treatments, research, early detection, and cancer survivals.

Our local American Cancer Society has had such a great turnout for the event in past years that they had to add another location in 2002. The two sites are: (1) McDowell High School football field and (2) Harborcreek High School football field.

In 2002, B.A.C. Consulting, Inc. and ArriveTech were awarded the “Best Team Spirit” award, partially for our dedication to this cause. Our goal was to raise money for a worthy cause through several fundraising events.

Please get involved in the fight against cancer.. If you have any questions or want to get a team together, call the American Cancer Society at (814) 866-5077 for more information.
