Relay for Life Tonight at Wilton High School

Relay for Life Tonight at Wilton High School

"It's free to the public and we would like to get everyone involved", said Minot Relay for Life member Heidi Llewellyn.

"We're thinking it will be a relay reunion to get teams that used to participate to come back and raise funds", she said.

"Nothing happened and it took 6 months before we got a doctor to say there's something there we need to have this re-checked", said Sarah.

Survivors, those who died as a result of cancer and their caregivers were also honored during the relay.

"In 2012, I was diagnosed unexpectedly with uterine cancer at 36 years old", said Meeker.

This year, 415 Relay for Life events are scheduled nationwide, with over 110,000 participants.

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Hundreds of supporters cheered as cancer survivors made their victory lap around the camping area at Colasanti's.

Paramus will hold its sixth annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life, called "Super Relay Heroes", at Paramus High School on the weekend of June 15 and 16. Brooks, a former high school teacher, started a cancer support group in Peru and is an ACS Road to Recovery driver who volunteers his time to drive patients to medical appointments and treatments at no cost.

Since the first Canadian Relay for Life in 1999, the event has raised over $500 million for the Canadian Cancer Society.

"As of right now the scans are looking good, I want to say yes, but cancer is a nasty thing", said Cooper.

If you can't make it out for the relay or 5K, you can run virtually!

The event is open to everyone as participants on a team, as cancer survivors or as spectators just taking in the evening and socializing. After 18 years of being involved, Silipigni has found that it isn't the money that matters the most, but the people. "I Relay because I will never lose HOPE!" "One thing I've learned is that you may not know the person you are walking next to on the track, but you share the same connection in some abstract way, and that's a attractive thing to share together".

"Newtown has such a wonderful and supportive close-knit community of survivors and caregivers", he said.

With each step, dozens of people in the city of Utica moved closer to a cure for cancer. "They donated a $10,000 kitchen for us to raffle", Jackson said.

"This community has just been one of the most generous, courageous communities I've seen do Relay for Life", said Brittany Donnellon, executive director of American Cancer Society.
