RANDOLPH, NJ- The American Cancer Society of Central Morris County’s Relay for Life will take place on June 6 and June 7, 2015 at County College of Morris in Randolph. The Event will be held from 4:00 p.m on June 6 until 6:00 a.m. on June 7.   Registration will start on Saturday June 6 at 2 p.m.

 There are three points to every Relay for Life Event – Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back.  The celebration portion includes a dinner for cancer Survivors and their Care Givers.  The remembrance portion includes a moving Luminaria Ceremony in which friends and loved-ones lost to cancer are remembered.  The entire event is a way of fighting back against cancer by raising funds for Research.  The American Cancer Society funds research for all types of cancer.  93% of all money raised goes to continuing research efforts.

 The Theme for this year’s Relay will be “The 80’s” to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the inaugural Relay for Life in 1985.  There will be themed laps, Dance Contests, Face-Painting for Children, and other fun events throughout the course of the event.
