Relay for Life Bridgewater

BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The American Cancer Society (ACS) Relay For Life of Bridgewater invites the community to rally together as part of the Relay For Life of Bridgewater Event at Duke Island Park Aug. 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., to help save lives from cancer.

Teams of students and members of the community will join forces for the annual fundraiser to help save lives from cancer.  Participants are invited to bring their lawn chairs, pack a picnic and join us as we celebrate and honor cancer survivors. 

Due to the pandemic, Relay For Life events have been adjusted and might look different, but the passion and commitment to fight cancer remains unchanged.

Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Tacoma, Washington, in 1985, 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.

For more than 35 years, participants and volunteers across the world have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society conduct breakthrough research, provide 24/7 support for cancer patients and access to lifesaving screenings.

There are many ways to get involved.

  • Register to be a part of the Relay For Life of Bridgewater   All communities are welcome to join and unite in the fight against cancer.  Simply sign up by registering on the event page to join as a survivor, participant or to start your own team.
    • Donate - If you can’t participate in this year’s Relay event, you can still help save lives by making a donation. Every dollar raised fuels the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
    • Purchase Luminaria to be displayed at the event – Help us “Light The Fight” by purchasing Luminaria!  Luminaria bags can be ordered online and each bag will be decorated by volunteers with messages of support.  The bags will then be set out at dusk and will be illuminating the path at Duke Island Park, providing hope to all that have been impacted by cancer.  For more information on Luminaria, please contact Luminaria Lead Sanemi Nair at saneminair@gmail.com

“Relay For Life is an event that really brings together all of our surrounding communities.  Nearly everyone knows someone that has been affected by cancer in some way, so it’s an event that everyone can relate to and feel good about supporting," said staff partner, Vicky Allen. “Relay For Life events are now more important than ever and we can’t allow progress to be put on hold because of the pandemic. Cancer won’t stop, and neither can we.”
