Relay For Life is THIS Friday!

Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of Greater Bridgewater gets underway with teams of residents gathering at Bridgewater Raynham Regional High School on June 12 at 3pm.

Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life – all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

This year’s event will be held on the track at Bridgewater Raynham Regional High School, 415 Center Street, Bridgewater. The Opening Ceremony will begin at 6pm. During this part of the event participants celebrate survivorship and the advances being made in cancer research.

Relay For Life’s Luminaria Ceremony takes place after sundown at 9pm, honoring the community’s cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. Participants will circle a track that is surrounded with glowing luminaria.
