2022 Relay For Life of Yorktown Welcomes You Back to the Track at Jack DeVito Veteran’s Memorial Track & Field ion Friday, June 10!

 We are just about 2 months away from our 2022 Relay For Life! Are you ready to Relay with us and make an impact in the fight against cancer?

Join us on Friday, June 11 at Jack DeVito Veteran’s Memorial Track & Field from 5 PM to 11 PM as we come together to celebrate cancer survivors and thrivers, remember loved ones lost and fight back as a community! The funds raised through Relay For Life fund breakthrough research, education, advocacy and support for all those affected by cancer, including right here in the Patterson and surrounding communities.

Kate Corsitto, your American Cancer Society Staff Partner for your 2022 Relay For Life of Yorktown shared her personal connection to cancer and reason to Relay, I Relay in memory of my dad and my aunt who lost their battles to cancer. I Relay in honor of my dear friend who is currently battling metastatic breast cancer. I FIGHT BACK each year as a staff partner and as a local fellow Relayer so that one day (I hope in my lifetime) we hear the words, "All cancers are cured!". I Relay with HOPE!”

This year’s event welcomes you back to Relay as we know and love it! We welcome Relay team, cancer survivors and anyone passionate about fighting cancer to join us beginning at 3 PM to set up your team or business site and walk the track with us while enjoying activities for the whole family! We will have food available for purchase thanks to the Yorktown PD and their BBG fundraiser.

At 5:30 we invite local cancer survivors to enjoy a complimentary meal and pick up their swag bags!  At 7:00 PM we will officially kickoff our program with our Opening Ceremony complete with a warm up and our national anthem. Throughout our evening together we will have local performers and bands on stage and as you walk our track, visit team’s sites and their fun activities to support our event’s fundraising efforts. At 10:00 PM we will illuminate our unique walking track with Luminaria Bags to honor all those affected by cancer. It is truly a magical experience to walk the track together during this ceremony!  

We welcome everyone form our community to join us for the day, to create a Relay team, host a vendor or business table, sponsor our event and be part of the movement to end cancer.

The event is supported by many local community partners including Preferred Care at Home and the Yorktown News. Special thanks to the Town of Yorktown and Yorktown Parks and Recreation for hosting our event.

Relay For Life continues to be more than just an event - it’s a movement, a community of like-minded survivors, caregivers, volunteers and participants who believe that the future can be free from cancer.
