BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Featuring a theme of 'Back to GL - We Envision a Future that is Cancer-Free', the 2018 Relay for Life of Summit, Berkeley Heights, Mountainside and New Providence will host a 'kick-off' event March 1, at 7 p.m., at the Governor Livingston High School (GL) Cafeteria. The 2018 Relay for Life wil be held June 2, also at GL.

Relay for Life raises money for  the  American Cancer Society (ACS), which leads the fight for a world without cancer.  From research, education and prevention to treatment, recovery and support of patients, caregivers, long-term survivors, ACS stands united in its mission to achieve a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer.

Relay for Life is a community event built on three pillars -- Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back. All have either been directly effected, or know someone who has been, touched by cancer. Relay for Life celebrates the survivors and those who are starting the journey, remembers those lost to cancer and fights back to help prevent the disease.
