RANDOLPH, NJ- American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Central Morris County occurred at County College of Morris from June 6 – 7 attracting over 400 people.  Relay, not a run but an event that symbolizes the journey a cancer survivor travels from the moment they hear the three dreaded words, “you have cancer” is meant to provide hope and healing.  

People present celebrated survivors and caregivers, remembered those people lost to the disease, and fought back against the disease.  Survivors wearing purple “survivor” shirts were treated to a dinner reception and special activities while all in attendance had the opportunity to partake in many activities and entertainment. 

Over 400 white luminaria bags lined the track at nightfall each bearing the name of someone to be remembered or honored.  A specialized Fight Back Ceremony included fun ways in which to prevent cancer.  Since "cancer doesn’t sleep" many individuals stayed out all night to represent the exhaustion that a survivor might feel.  Relay For Life of Central Morris County was an astounding success as it continued to encompass 7 United Communities including their Mayors within Denville, Dover, Mt. Lakes, Parsippany, Randolph, Rockaway Borough, and Rockaway Township.  The town councils of Denville, Dover, Randolph, and Rockaway Borough took the next step by also having town based teams.
