Cranford’s Relay for Life

Submitted by Linda Miklencic

The planning committee is looking for Cancer survivors and caregivers to register for Cranford’s 12th Annual Relay for Life on May 17, 2019, at Hillside Avenue School. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s celebration of hope and survivorship. Our survivors are the celebrities of the night! They start the Relay by taking the first lap and then their caregivers join for another special lap. Taking part in this incredible gathering is a genuinely uplifting experience.

Over 600 participants registered last year and we raised almost $100,000! The proceeds fund cancer research, including 47 Nobel Prize winners, and provide services, such as wigs, transportation, and lodging, to local cancer patients.

In the survivor tent, we host a dinner before the opening ceremony and provide the survivors with a t-shirt, medal and goodie bag. Please contact Linda Miklencic, Event Lead at if you or someone you know is interested.

Each and every member of the community is invited to join us. Walkers can spend as little or as much time on the track as they wish. A little of your time can make a huge difference in the fight against cancer.
