Relay For Life is the world’s largest volunteer-based fundraising event. For over 36 years, communities worldwide have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. We strive to make this event as safe as possible and will follow local COVID-related guidelines.

At Relay For Life, community members take turns walking around a track lined with luminaria bags. In our first lap of the day, attendees had the opportunity to cheer for local survivors (or participate as survivors). Caregivers of cancer patients (currently or previously diagnosed) were invited to join the Survivors. Local entertainers kept you energized.

The Parsippany Hills High School Key Club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany.
