Relay for life of New Fairfield would like to thank all who came out to BRINGO, Sunday, March 4th. Led by the Survivor and Caregiver Committee, primarily made up of local teens, Survivors and caregivers were welcomed to a morning of brunch and bingo! For those who do not know, Bringo is a free event with food, bingo, prizes and smiles. This was the second year the event took place to honor and celebrate those who have fought cancer and those who have fought alongside them.
If you have ever heard the words “You have cancer” YOU are a survivor.
If you have driven someone to treatments, brought them meals, sat with them during long treatment days, given them emotional support during their journey; YOU are a caregiver. Relay for Life of New Fairfield thinks it is important for you to know that you will always be a caregiver. If your survivor has lost their battle YOU are still a caregiver and are encouraged to join us at any and all events!
This year well over 53 people turned out for this amazing Relay For Life event. That is a huge portion of the community that has been affected by this horrible disease. Unfortunately, we know there are so many more! You are not alone! Please, reach out and join us so we can celebrate YOU and give you a chance to relax, unwind and just enjoy one another! Everyone, including the 20 some odd student committee members, had a blast! The committee's next free event for survivors and caregivers is in May for a BBQ at Squantz Pond.
Relay for Life of New Fairfield is here for you. YOU are our reasons to raise funds, raise awareness and work tirelessly so one day there will be a world without cancer.
Last but not least we want to thank the local businesses without whom BRINGO would not have been possible. Your delicious donations were enjoyed by all our guests and helped to make the day even more special. So from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!
