TEAM FEDS Raised $11,000 For The American Cancer Society’s 2012 Relay For Life Event

U.S. Attorney Alicia A.G. Limtiaco, Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that her office joined the thousands that flocked to the annual Relay for Life Event held at the George Washington Senior High School track to celebrate cancer Survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer and to join with the many teams on Guam  that participate in the fight against cancer.

Team FEDS, “Friends Engaging in Dynamic Service,” is comprised of co-workers and friends from various federal law enforcement agencies.  Team FEDS joined the fight against cancer in 2003 by forming the team, when one of their co-workers was stricken by cancer.  The team strives to raise $10K every year through fundraisers such as their annual Chili Cook-off and other creative fundraisers.  Their biggest achievement was in 2008 when they raised $14K.   This year, Team FEDS, with only 17 online team members, four being Survivors, but with many supporters, raised $11,000.  Team FEDS Relay in support of cancer research and clinical studies -- they Relay because they are FED UP with CANCER!

Attached is a photo of the team taken the night of Relay.  Guam’s Relay for Life annual event is the largest American Cancer Society event on Guam.  There were 83 teams registered for this year’s Relay resulting in raising the amount of $475,577.00.
