The 5th Annual Relay for Life of Eastchester will take place on Saturday, May 11 at Concordia College. The opening ceremony and first lap will start at 6pm, with the event ending the following day, Sunday, May 12 at 6am.
This community event brings people together to raise money for cancer research and advocacy and also includes games and activities such as live music, outdoor movies, and family-friendly games; a reception for cancer survivors and their caregivers; a luminaria ceremony to remember those we have lost or still fighting cancer; and various on-site fundraisers. Since this event started in 2009, the Relay for Life of Eastchester has raised over $250,000. This year the event hopes to raise over $100,000.
Relay for Life is a 12 hour walkathon sponsored by the American Cancer Society. To register for the event or to find more information please visit www.relayforlife.org/eastchesterny
