In years past, you might have expected an invitation to the Relay for Life Kickoff Celebration, a small night in February where Committee members invite all those interested in participating in our fight against cancer to come and enjoy the official start to the Relay season. This year, however, things are going to get kicked-off a bit differently. Instead of one night, the Relay for Life Cranford Committee is nominating the entire month of February as Relay for Life Kickoff Month!
That’s right, we’d like to extend this celebration to the entire month of February. Below you’ll find several dates and locations that committee members will be set up at a table to promote the Relay and to speak with anyone and everyone who wishes to become more involved. We’ll be conducting giveaways, offering registration help, granting opportunities to become a captain or a committee member, in addition to a plethora of other things that’ll help initiate the official Relay season.
For those who are unaware, the Relay for Life is the flagship event of the American Cancer Society. For 12 hours, teams camp out and walk around a track to raise money for cancer research. The night is a celebration of hope, survivorship, and the ongoing fight against cancer, with its primary goal being to raise awareness and raise funding for the incredible work that the American Cancer Society does. However, cancer isn’t so limited as to be defeated in one night, and thus our fight extends beyond the passion, drive, and togetherness we experience in those 12 hours. The fight reaches across a countless amount of hours, months, and even years, so it urgently needs volunteers.
The dates and locations are as follows:
February 15th: Girls Varsity Basketball Senior Night, Cranford High School, 7:00 P.M.
February 22nd: Cranford High School Rotunda, 3:00 P.M. (Free cookie for a Twitter follow!)
So come join us! Whether you want to learn more about the Relay, want to register, or just want a free cupcake, all are welcome. Taking just a little bit of your time could mean that much more time we have for those enduring this ongoing struggle.
