Volunteers Needed for Westbury’s Relay for Life

American Cancer Society Event Scheduled for June 12

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is currently seeking community volunteers to help organize and participate in its Relay for Life event being planned for June 12.

Relay for Life is an overnight community celebration where groups of friends, families, neighbors and coworkers form teams to walk around a track, to raise spirits, awareness and funds to fight cancer through research, education, advocacy and patient and family services.

At nightfall hundreds of luminaria candles placed around the track are lit creating a glowing tribute to honor loved ones battling cancer and those who have lost their battles. It is an experience that will warm your heart and keep your energy flowing with live music and other entertainment into the night. It is a fun filled, moving, poignant, magical event.

The community is invited to attend the first general information kick off meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23 in the Westbury High School cafeteria.
