PARSIPPANY — Mayor Soriano presented a proclamation to “Relay For Life.”

Relay For Life Morris County is scheduled for Saturday May 5 at the Morristown Armory, 430 Western Avenue, from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

1 in 3 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. One of those people could be you or someone you love. That’s why we Relay. When you join a Relay For Life event, you’re helping the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking research, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention information. When you Relay, you help save lives.

Michael A. Soriano, Mayor of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills, said “I support the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life programs and encourage all residents to participate in the Relay For Life event scheduled for Saturday May 5, 2018 at the Morristown Armory from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., to celebrate cancer survivors and remember loved ones who are no longer with us, and to help in raising funds to make a
difference in the fight against cancer. Together we will find a cure.”

Greater Morris County area residents will be joining 4 Million people in over 5,000 communities throughout the United States in organizing Relay For Life events to celebrate cancer survivors and remember loved ones who are no longer with us, and to raise much needed funds for the American Cancer Society’s research grants and programs to find cures and provide community and patient support programs to help those undergoing treatment

The money raised through Relay For Life events helps realize the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate life, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

Donations are used to fund life-saving cancer research, patient support services, prevention and education information, and detection and treatment programs. Here’s how the money raised last year is helping make a difference.

Remember with a Luminaria as we remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those in treatment by dedicating Luminaria bags. Each Luminaria bag is personalized with a name and or message and illuminated after dark at the event.
