Champions and supporters of the American Cancer Society are coming together to kick off the enrollment drive for CPS-3 in Frederick County. Champions are community residents – including cancer survivors, caregivers or those honoring a loved one who has battled cancer – who have volunteered to help drive CPS-3 awareness. At the kickoff, they will learn about CPS-3 and receive the tools to educate the community and recruit participants.
Enrollment takes place in Frederick County from March 19 -23, 2013 in partnership with Hollow Creek Golf Club, Monocacy Valley Church, Frederick Memorial Hospital, St. Paul's Church, and Sport & Health. For locations, dates and to register for enrollment, see www.CPS3FrederickCounty.org.
