Letter: Grateful for Cape Ann Relay for Life support

To the editor:

As staff partner of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Cape Ann volunteer planning committee, I would like to thank area residents for their generosity and support.

A total of 16 teams participated in this year’s event and raised more than $40,000 to help the Society’s fight for every birthday, threatened by every cancer, here and throughout the world.

This outstanding show of support proves that the people of Cape Ann stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the American Cancer Society to achieve its mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.

We were honored to be joined by over 75 survivors who walked the opening Survivors Lap, officially kicking off this year’s event. These survivors are the reason we continue the fight. Their participation inspires hope in those currently battling cancer.

A special thanks to the many Relay For Life volunteers who worked to make this event a success – celebrating the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and pledging to fight back against the disease. The Relay For Life committee did an outstanding job of putting the event together.

We also appreciate the generosity of this year’s corporate sponsors. Relay For Life would not be possible without their support.

To get involved with your local Relay For Life community event, visit RelayForLife.org or call 1-800-227-2345 for more information.
