American Cancer Society and New Fairfield Save More Lives From Cancer through Annual Relay For Life Event
New Fairfield, Connecticut – Relay for Life – On June 2nd, 2pm to 11 pm.
Hundreds will join together at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of New Fairfield to help save more lives from cancer. The event will take place from 2pm to 11pm at New Fairfield High School Track.
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 participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.
The Relay For Life movement 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. Last year, 400 people participated in the Relay For Life of New Fairfield and raised over$120,000.
Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding groundbreaking cancer research, supporting education and risk reduction efforts, and providing free information and critical services for people with cancer who need them. No one understands how vital these services are more than local cancer survivor who utilized the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery, Hope Lodge or another vital program.
In addition to the support of the community, Relay For Life of New Fairfield is also supported by many businesses and organizations.
