WILLISTON, VT–The American Cancer Society’s 2010 Relay For Life-NordicStyle will have folks from all over the country cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking throughout the night . On March 6-7 2010, teams will gather and are asked to keep at least one member on the track at the Trapp Family Lodge Ski Touring Center at all times, signifying that cancer doesn’t sleep…it is with us 24 -7. Because the event is not truly competitive, participants are challenged to raise money for cancer research and patient support services. With a broad cross-section of young and old, rural and urban, and athletic and not-so-athletic, people seek out the experience of this historic event now in its seventh year, and the only one of its kind in the United States.
Snowshoeing and skiing under the stars on a torch lit track can be mystical. and with the Society providing a large, heated tent filled with food, warm drinks and entertainment to keep the crowd energized and enthusiastic, .Relay For Life NordicStyle will be a most memorable and gratifying experience. Although many chose to pitch a tent near the campfire the Ski Touring Centeradjacent to the luxurious Trapp Family Lodge is available for participants to enjoy the comfort of an indoor fireplace.
Registration for Relay For Life NordicStyle, voted one of a “Top Ten Winter Event” by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce in 2008 and 2009, is available online atwww.relayforlife.org/nordicstylevt.

About the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in :country-regionAmerica who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
