The American Cancer Society of Central Morris County’s Relay for Life will take place on May 31st and June 1st, 2014 at Smith Field in Parsippany. The Event will be held from 4:00 p.m. on May 31 until 6:00 a.m. on June 1. Registration will start on Saturday May 31 at 2 p.m..
The Relay For Life is a noncompetitive walk event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer. The theme for this year’s Relay is “Olympics.” The participating Towns are Dover, Randolph, Rockaway Boro, Rockaway Township, Denville, Mountain Lakes, and Parsippany.
Representatives from local Corporate Sponsors including St. Clare’s Health System, Applebees, IHOP of Parsippany, Diagnostica Stago, Vanderbilt Industries, Spectrum Staffing Services, Wells Fargo, and more will also be on hand.
Our featured Guest Speaker will be George Oliphant from the NBC 4 TV Show “George to the Rescue.” The day and night will be filled with music courtesy of a DJ and guest entertainers Nikki Briar and Band. There will be many activities including a Party Magic Balloon Show, an interactive Karate demonstration, Zumba Dance Instruction, face painting for children, and a bounce house among others. There will also be themed laps from start to finish to help keep Relayers going through the night because “cancer does not sleep.”
There are three points to every Relay for Life Event – Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back. The celebration portion includes a dinner provided by Applebees, the Godfather Restaurant, and Whole Foods 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.
By supporting Relay For Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives, and that helps us move closer to our ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
