Preferred Mutual’s Relay For Life Team participated in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Chenango County on Friday, July 14 in Norwich.

Preferred Mutual Insurance Company (“Preferred Mutual”)’s Relay For Life Team recently participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Chenango County. The event took place from 4 p.m. to midnight on Friday, July 14 at the East Main Street Park in Norwich, New York. Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, in which team members take turns walking around a track or designated path in order to raise awareness for cancer.

The Preferred Mutual 39-member Relay For Life Team, through fundraisers leading up to and at the event, has raised $4,916 this year, which was $1,416 over their goal of $3,500. The team is currently still fundraising to raise the remaining $84 to reach the $5,000 “Gold-Level Status” by August 31. The money raised goes to the American Cancer Society, whose mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

The Preferred Foundation, a corporate giving entity of Preferred Mutual Insurance Company (“Preferred Mutual”), donated an additional $5,000 to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Chenango County. In combination with the Preferred Mutual’s Relay For Life Team’s efforts, $10,000 will have been raised for the Relay For Life of Chenango County.
