The Rolls-Royce Employee’s Relay Team began its winter dance and auction event in 2006 to boost their annual contribution to the American Cancer Society. This benefit, along with other fundraising efforts, has made this team one of the top donating teams in the region. Last year it donated $55,134.
The Relay for Life is a global effort sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise money and awareness to fight the battle against cancer. Each year millions of people in the United States and around the world participate in this relay. The employees at Rolls-Royce have had a relay team since 2003.
