Participate In The 'Relay For Life'

Join The Fight To Find The Cure

The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

Long Island residents are encouraged to participate in Relay For Life events and programs, and in so doing, to engage in the battle against a disease that attacks women, men and children, devastating lives and upending families.

In the Long Island region, Relay For Life events will be held as follows:

April 1-2, 2006 - Relay For Life of Lawrence

May 5-6, 2006 - Relay For Life of Farmingdale

May 12-13, 2006 - Relay For Life of Kings Park

May 20-21, 2006 - Relay For Life of Lindenhurst
