The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled all types of cancer, remember our loved ones lost, and take action to help find a cure…and these events won't stop until we finish the fight against cancer once and for all!

American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Central Morris County (https://www.facebook.com/RelayforLifeofCentralMorrisCounty_ will take place on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7 at County College of Morris, Randolph. Registration will start on Saturday, June 6 at 2:00 p.m. with Opening ceremony beginning at 4:00 p.m. and the festivities continue all night long until 6:00 a.m. on the Sunday, June 7. There is no obligation to stay all day or overnight, so please join as they walk around the track to Fight Back, Celebrate, and Remember those touched by cancer!

There are three points to every Relay for Life Event Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back. The celebration portion includes a dinner 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.

The Theme for this year's Relay will be "The 80's" to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the inaugural Relay for Life in 1985. There will be themed laps, Dance Contests, Face-Painting for Children, and other fun events throughout the course of the event, and a survivor's and caregivers dinner, as well as the evening Luminaria Ceremony starting at 9:00 p.m. Luminaria bags that line the track to honor or remember loved ones in our lives that are touched by cancer can be purchased online, by clicking here.
