Walk for a Cure: Relay for Life in Two Weeks
Cancer survivors and families from New Milford, River Edge and Oradell join forces for the second annual Relay for Life
The second annual American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life" is only two weeks away and your help is needed to make this year's relay as successful as last year's event with over 800 participants and $97,000 raised to support the fight against cancer.
Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight fundraiser to celebrate cancer survivorship, remember those who lost the battle and fight back against this terrible disease. Most importantly, Relay for Life raises money for research, education and local American Cancer Society programs.
Participants form teams that camp out, walk laps around the track and participate in activities designed to build a spirit of community while honoring loved ones.
Relay For Life is being held at Gibbs Elementary School beginning Friday, May 18 at 5pm and ending Saturday, May 19 at 5am.
Registration begins at 5pm on May 18. The opening ceremony kicks off with a "Survivor Lap" at 7pm followed by the "Luminaria Ceremony" at 10pm and "Fight Back Ceremony" at 1am.
There is still time to form a team, join a team or walk as a family. Register online at www.relayforlife.org/newmilfordnj. There is a $10 Registration fee. (Children under 5 do not pay fee.) Donations are welcomed and encouraged.
