Relay Online Connects

With $74,336 aready in, online
donations for West Bloomfield Relay
for Life have kept the American
Cancer Society (ACS) Web site
buzzing.
This season, West Bloomfield par-
ticipants joined others nationwide in
a pilot program allowing donations to
be made online.
"We have come from 30th place to
first in the state in community relays
in less than three months," said Bill
Graham, online chair for Relay for
Life of West Bloomfield, which took
place June 12-13. West Bloomfield is
just $374 short of being the No. 1
community relay in the country.
Graham is also the top individual
fund-raiser among West Bloomfield
relay donors with $7,854.
Graham said online donations are
proving to be more successful than
phone calls, mail and other offline
methods. Online donations brought
in a big chunk of the $245,913 total
raised through the West Bloomfield
event.

Donors making online contribu-
tions will receive an e-mailed tax
receipt from the ACS. Relay Online's
other features include pages for par-
ticipants to share the story and photo
of loved ones affected by the disease
and for survivors to share their own
stories of hope.
For example, there is a page dedi-
cated to Graham's daughter Alex, who
died of cancer in 1999 at age 17.

Presenters will be asked
to bring "new research"
based on literary, sociologi-
cal or media sources, the
organizers say. The confer-
ence will produce "the first
full-length academic treat-
ment of the Rebbe" and
greatly widen "the academ-
ic perspective on the
Rebbe and his contribu-
tions."
The event was
announced in June on the
10th anniversary of Rabbi
Schneerson's death.
