American Cancer Society's Relay For Life

| | Comments (0)

I got this from a friend of mine:

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life will be taking place in Hoboken on May 20th from 11 a.m. to midnight on Pier A. RFL is a community celebration where individuals and teams come together to camp out, barbecue and walk around “relay style” to honor cancer survivors and pay tribute to those who have lost their battles with the disease. Funds raised support cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services in Hoboken.

Cancer survivors are invited to celebrate their triumph over cancer by participating in an inspirational “Survivors’ Lap” to open the relay. Come nightfall, the Luminaria Ceremony will light up Pier A with hundreds of candles - each one purchased in honor or in memory of a loved one who has faced cancer.

Club H has also organized a simultaneous event called Spin For Line – a one-hour spin class that will be held at Sinatra Park. Classes will take place between 10 a.m – 4 p.m. for $25 per person.

Teams can still sign up to participate in either event, whether made up of friends and family, colleagues or community organizations.

The Young Professionals Committee of the ACS will also be hosting a happy hour at Tenth and Willow this Thursday, May 11. In the spirit of competition, the theme of the night will be baseball, as the Yankees take on the Red Sox and the Mets face the Phillies. The cover fee is $5, with total proceeds being matched by the bar and donated to the ACS. Drink specials will be also be available, including half price martinis and bottled beers. Festivities begin at 7:00.
