LIVESTRONG Day is an annual global day of action, celebrating cancer survivors and heightening awareness of the organization's overall goal, a world without cancer. In honor of the day, employees of Caesars Palace will wear yellow LIVESTRONG wristbands.  The NIKETOWN Store in The Forum Shops at Caesars will sell wristbands for a $1 donation benefiting LIVESTRONG.

"Many of our friends, family and employees have been affected in some way by cancer.  We hope that the yellow wristband display at the center of Las Vegas Boulevard will call attention to the global fight against the disease," said Gary Selesner, President of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
