MORRIS COUNTY, NJ-As a beautiful spring finally arrives, 7 Communities Mayors have again united in the fight against cancer through American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Central Morris County.  Relay is not a race or run; it’s an opportunity for YOU to make a difference.  You can make that difference by getting involved.

Whether you have ever had cancer or been a family member, friend, provider, or colleague to someone who has, join us as we CELEBRATE you – our treasured survivors and caregivers.  Ever lost someone to cancer?  Join us as we REMEMBER with you through our breathtaking luminaria ceremony.  Just want to put an end to cancer?  Join us; let’s FIGHT BACK together!  At our event, survivors and caregivers will be treated to exclusive delights - survivor shirts, gifts, a dinner reception, special activities and more.  Everyone is treated to a variety of activities and entertainment for all ages plus vendors too.

From now through June 6th, we’re busy joining together with YOU as friends, loved ones, colleagues, students, religious friends – as a community to help people battling cancer and to put an end to cancer.  You can form a team of one or join with others to fundraise and educate others on how the American Cancer Society family is helping people in your local community by providing free services including rides to/from treatment, wigs, support groups, research, and more.

He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
