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?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.
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.

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!
