CLARK – The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Clark will return for another year of fighting cancer and helping to create a world with more birthdays this June.
The event will take place on June 8 and 9 at the football field at Arthur L. Johnson High School, 365 Westfield Avenue, Clark, starting at 6 p.m. and continuing until 6 a.m. Relay for Life is an overnight celebration where individuals and teams camp out, picnic, dance, play games and take turns circling a track “relay” style. This overnight event unites the entire community in celebrating those who have had cancer, remembering loved ones lost and providing an opportunity to fight back against the disease.
Relay For Life begins as cancer survivors walk in a “survivor lap” around the track to celebrate victory over cancer. Later as the sun sets, participants light hundreds of luminaria candles to pay tribute to those lost to the disease.
Relay for Life supports the society’s mission to save lives by helping people get well, stay well, find cures and fight back. To register, volunteer or for additional information visit RelayForLife.org/ClarkNJ or call 1-800-227-2345
