Sponsored by the American Cancer Society and now in its 28th year, Relay For Life involves more than 4 million people in more than 20 countries annually to raise money and awareness for cancer research and treatment.
Weston Racquet Club’s Relay For Life team members will solicit donations, then they will walk and participate in various activities throughout the night of the event. Their efforts will honor friends and loved ones who have been stricken with cancer, a disease that claims almost 600,000 lives per year in the U.S.
“This is a wonderful, inspiring event,” said Weston Racquet Club Manager Ginny Noel. “Our club is proud to be a part of the Weston community. We look forward to pulling an all-nighter with our friends and neighbors in town to take on this disease affecting so many lives.”
The WRC-Weston Racquet Cares team consists of Angelo Rossetti, Bruce Angeli, Alex Kantarelis, Annie Stephenson, Marc Clinton, Tim Dancy, Evan Weiss, Ashley Miller, Ettore Rossetti, Adolfo Nunez, Catalin Pavel, Ginny Noel, Lisa Moholt, Karen Rumsey, Jessica Pils, Kathleen Mrazik, and Nicole Kaeser. Additionally, many family members of the WRC team will be joining the walk to cure cancer.
The Weston event will start at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, and continues all night and into the following day. Special events will include an opening ceremony, a survivors lap featuring those who have overcome the disease, a caregiver lap that includes both cancer victims and the people who have cared for them, a luminaria ceremony paying tribute to those who have been lost to the disease, a fight back ceremony symbolizing the ongoing battle against cancer and a closing ceremony at the end of the event.
