Fighting Cancer at The Vine

In the spirit of giving, some of our favorite Newsviners have banded together to create the Team Newsvine Relay For Life. For those who aren’t familiar with Relay For Life, it’s a worldwide program to raise donations for the fight against cancer. Teams self-organize in different cities and run, walk, or jog around a track or a field from sundown to sunup to raise awareness of this fatal disease.

Several days ago, Corey Spring, Mykola Bilokonsky, Top Jedi, Prompt, and several other Viners organized such a group for an Ohio relay and they’ve already raised almost $1500 for the cause! If you’re interested in making a donation to help fight cancer, I recommend heading over to the Team Newsvine Relay For Life page and checking it out. You can donate under the “General Team Donation” umbrella or specify your name if you’d like. 100% goes directly to the American Cancer Society, of course, and the donation is tax-deductible.

It’s gratifying to see the spirit of sharing and altruism that has developed at Newsvine expand to areas of the offline world. While Newsvine itself had no part in the creation of this event, we fully support our members’ efforts to spread awareness about the fight against cancer.
