Over the weekend of May 12-13, several Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS) physicians will participate in the annual Relay for Life of Gwinnett, being held at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds. Relay for Life is an American Cancer Society (ACS) event that raises money for cancer research and awareness.
On May 12 at 8:00 p.m., as a part of the day’s activities, Dr. Richard Loyd, Dr. Stephen Szabo, and Dr. Carla W. Jorgensen will participate in GCS’s “Dunk-A-Doc-A-Thon.” For two dollars, participants will have three chances to knock a “doc” off a suspended platform and into a tank of water.
“We’re thrilled to be able to contribute to this event, and to make an impact in such a fun way,” said Dr. Jorgensen.
According to the ACS’s website, Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.
