The Hanover Park High School Key Club will host a Relay for Life to raise funds for the American Cancer Society on Sunday, May 19th, from 12:00-5:00 pm, at Lurker Park, on Ridgedale Avenue in East Hanover. There is no rain date. Admission costs $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and $2 for children under 5 years old.

Students from East Hanover and Florham Park, their families and friends, and community members are invited to attend the daytime event, which is a modified version of a typical overnight Relay for Life. Games, which cost between 25 cents and $3.00, include: water balloon toss, face painting, tattoo booth, cola ring toss, and more. Food items for sale include: hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels, pizza, baked goods, chips, soda, and water. A variety of music will be played during the day.

A basket and gift card raffle will be held, with prizes generously donated by local businesses and families. Local vendors, businesses, and restaurants will be on hand to promote their goods and services. To reserve a table for $20, please contact relayforlifehp2013@gmail.com.

The Relay for Life event will be run by student volunteers from the Hanover Park High School Key Club with the help of advisors Lauren Fazzio and Diane Minsavage. Key Club co-president, senior Megan Seely commented on the importance of Relay for Life. “Holding our own Relay for Life event, Hanover Park’s Key Club wanted to do all that we can to fundraise for the American Cancer Society. We hope that the day is full of fun while also raising money to further cancer research.”

American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society has nearly a century of experience in saving lives and ending suffering from cancer. With a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, the American Cancer Society works to help people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by offering support after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer; and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.

The American Cancer Society is the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $4 billion since 1985. As a result, according to the Society, more than 12 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.

To learn more about the American Cancer Society or to get help, call (800) 227-2345 anytime, day or night, or visit www.cancer.org.
