LOCKPORT’S RELAY FOR LIFE KICKS OFF!

IT’S RELAY FOR LIFE TIME AGAIN IN LOCKPORT! The Kick-off and Awards party will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 24 at the Elk’s Lodge. on North Canal street in Lockport. There will be breakfast-type refreshments, awards, fun and all the hugs you can handle!! It’s time for last year’s teams to get together to get psyched up for the area’s 9th annual American Cancer Society event at Emmet Bellknap School track. It’s also time for anyone interested in getting involved to come and meet the relay family!!! Our local Relay has raised over $1,100,000 for cancer research, advocacy and services and we’ve had a lot of FUN doing it!! This year’s theme for the June 20-21 overnight event is “Wave Goodbye to cancer”- a beach theme! Last year we had 77 teams and 129 cancer survivors to cheer on in our Survivor’s Lap. Thousands came to help us celebrate life and keep on the fight against cancer. Relay is an emotional experience you’ll never forget! This is the 25th anniversary of Relay For Life and they will be taking place all across America and other countries, too! It’s not an athletic event at all- it’s a gathering of hearts who care!

For all the info on our Relay, go to www.relayforlife.org/lockportny  I’ll be happy to answer any of your other questions. Don’t just think about the cancer monster, get out there and fight with us!
