Relay for Life Team Raises Funds to Fight Cancer; Proceeds from Local Fundraiser to Support American Cancer Society's Efforts to Create a World with More Birthdays

Team Bobby Kimball's Friends and Family is helping the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Madison/Florham Park effort to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays…one pancake at a time. The team will host a pancake breakfast on Sunday, March 7th from 9 AM until 12 PM at the Madison BPO Elks Lodge #1465 located at 192 Main Street, Madison, with all funds raised supporting their team for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Madison/Florham Park. The public is encouraged to attend and enjoy breakfast food for a donation of $6.00 per person. There will also be information available about the Relay For Life of Madison/Florham Park, which raised more than $50,000 last year.

Now in its fourth year, the Relay For Life of Madison/Florham Park is encouraging area residents to form teams and to volunteer for this annual event that supports cancer research, education and patient and family services.

The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is a celebration of hope and survivorship. Team members take turns walking or running a track for all day and all night to fight cancer. The event opens with a Survivor Lap, as survivors of all forms of cancer are honored by the community, family and friends. At nightfall, hundreds of luminaria candles are lit, with each one symbolizing a loved one that won the fight against cancer, or honoring those lost to cancer.

Funds raised at Relay For Life event will help the American Cancer Society help people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back right here in the Madison area. The fourth annual Relay For Life of Madison will be held overnight at the Madison High School on June 25 at 4 PM. For more information about Relay For Life, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.relayforlife.org/MadisonNJ.
