Cranford’s 14th Annual Relay for Life Set for May 22

Cranford’s 14th Annual Relay for Life

American Cancer Society

Cranford’s 14th Annual Relay for Life will take place on May 22 at Cranford High School and it will look a bit different this year. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the committee has decided to concentrate on two important components: Celebrating our Survivors and Remembering our lost loved ones. We are calling this year’s event “Relay Reimagined”.

During the day, we invite all registered survivors for a socially distanced gathering in front of the high school. Light refreshments will be served. 

The most emotionally moving time during Relay is the luminaria ceremony when we remember our loved ones lost to cancer. This year we will drive along the luminaria track making a loop around the school. Unfortunately, we all know someone who has lost their life to cancer. We take this time to slow down for a moment to reflect on the lives of those who did not win the battle.

Luminaria bags will be distributed to all elementary students before the event. We are asking for a $10 donation per bag or $25 for four bags. You can also purchase on the website below or contactless by e-mailing Christine Saliceti at

Our fundraising efforts and the dedication Cranford has to this unique event is our way to fight back and have hope that we will see a world where cancer is completely eliminated. Relay for Life fundraising efforts support The American Cancer Society’s lifesaving research, advocacy, and local patient services.

Every member of the community is invited to join us from 8-11 p.m. at CHS. A minute of your time can make a huge difference in the fight against cancer.
