Relay For Life of Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence, and Summit will be here in 100 days. Why is that significant? Because the American Cancer Society, the official sponsor of birthdays, celebrates a huge milestone this year. On May 22, 2013 ACS will be 100 years old. 1913, in a world where cancer was a forbidden word, it was 15 volunteers who came together and formed what we know as the American Cancer Society. It was volunteers who took up the fight 100 years ago, and it is volunteers who will finish the fight! Join Relay For Life and help us make this cancer’s last century.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing community event that gives us a chance to celebrate the lives of survivors who have battled cancer, honor the caregivers, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
This year’s Relay is June 7 – 8 at Governor Livingston High School, Berkeley Heights.
Remember 100 years of American Cancer Society milestones

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives and help people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; being a support system for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer; and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
