At the time of this writing the American Cancer Society posted on their website that 544 participants raised $150,311.59 for the Relay for Life of Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence and Summit which was held on May 13, 2017 from 4 p.m. to midnight. The event was moved indoors to Governor Livingston High School in Berkeley Heights due to poor weather conditions but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the 75 teams, the survivors and their families, and the many volunteers and supporters who joined in the effort.
The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams raise funds in the months leading up to the event.
Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community, with four million participants in 6,000 events worldwide in 2015.
