American Cancer Society's Relay For Life Roosevelt Island Update - Still Time to Join, Start A Team Or Perform

Here's an update from the organizers of the June 15 Roosevelt Island Relay For Life

Roosevelt Island Relay For Life Organizers Meeting At Nonno's
What is Relay?

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and is the largest non-profit movement in the world. Its goals are threefold and simple – to raise funds to END cancer as a national health concern, to CELEBRATE SURVIVORS, and REMEMBER those that we have lost to cancer. Everyone has a personal reason to stand up to cancer and FIGHT BACK. Relay is a non-competitive walking event in which people form teams and commit to having one person from their team walking a track at all times throughout the event. Relay will be a family friendly event with something for everyone. There will be all kinds of food, activities, and entertainment the entire time – for kids, teens, and adults. Find more info here: relayforlife.org/rooseveltislandny

Interested in starting a team?
Anyone of any age can start a Relay team! You can have a team of any size, and you can even include people that can't attend the event on June 15 but want to help you fundraise. Once you register your team on the Relay website the rest of your friends and loved ones will be able to join. Register here: relayforlife.org/rooseveltislandny

Business Hours
I'm holding "office hours" on the Island twice a week. As long as Alphonse will let me hang out, I'll be at Nonno's enjoying the Spring weather with my laptop on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 and Fridays from 3-5. Stop by to ask any question you'd like.

Do you know a talented musician? Are you a teenager in a garage band? Are you in a middle school glee club? Perhaps you are a child prodigy with the voice of an angel?
If you know anyone that is interested in performing at Relay and helping us make the day fun, give them this link:  http://bit.ly/16n5ASc

Thanks Roosevelt Island!
So far, Roosevelt Island Relay For Life has 22 teams, 63 participants and raised more than $8 thousand. More on Roosevelt Island Relay For Life from previous post.

As they undergo training, they'll learn new skills and gain self-esteem in themselves. Each individual piece of the main sales presentation is probably a step.

You can use some old bean two poles to stick for the end of your bunk beds.
You will pick that your dread is not the way big of the
perfect problem you once thought.
