RANDOLPH, NJ - At Thursday’s town council meeting, American Cancer Society representative Nicolas Limanov presented a plaque and provided flyers in preparation for the upcoming Relay for Life walk on June 10.
“I have a plaque today presented to Mayor Christine Carey and the township council thanking you for your support of the American Cancer Society,” Limanov said. “On June 10 we will have our event, our cancer walk. Thank you for all your support, and I hope to see you all there.”
The Central Morris County Relay for Life: Fight Back Against Cancer will take place at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Parsippany.
“For the past few years, Councilman Forstenhausler has been chairing our group,” said Mayor Christine Carey. “We have our team ready for this year, and our new council member, Lance Tkacs, is chairing our group.”
Relay for Life of Central Morris County includes Randolph Township, Parsippany-Troy Hills, Denville, Rockaway Borough, Wharton, Mountain Lakes, Rockaway Township and Dover.
Earlier this year, on March 15, mayors from the eight Central Morris County towns participated in a kick-off event explaining the need for volunteers for the project and ways to get involved. Speakers taught how to celebrate survivors and honor those lost, reminding attendees that cancer has affected each of them in some way.
Registration for this year’s Relay for Life will open at 2 p.m. on June 10 and the walk will go through the night to Sunday, June 11 at 6 p.m. Western Pest Services is sponsoring this year’s event.
Participants can also dedicate a luminaire in honor of someone touched by cancer, whether a survivor, a lost loved one or a person currently battling the disease. These will be lit after dark while observing a moment of silence.
“I know we are working on our team and our fundraising, and we will be there on June 10,” Mayor Carey said in closing.
