Relay for Life of Berkeley Heights Set for May 21st

Relay For Life

American Cancer Society 

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Berkeley Heights invites the communities of Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence and Summit to join the movement to honor and remember loved ones and fight back for lifesaving change on Saturday May 21st, 2022 (noon to midnight) at The Grove at Connell Park – 200 Connell Dr, Berkeley Heights, NJ).  There is no cost to attend the event and this year’s event theme is “Under the “C” Sea” and will be featuring music and entertainment by Thoro Entertainment along with games, food, and activities for all!

Community volunteers are the backbone of this movement which includes cancer survivors, caregivers, local citizens, and participants who believe that the future can be free from cancer and own the power to make that change.  

Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.
