NEW WINDSOR – The American Cancer Society has announced that five community-led Relay For Life events are planned across the Hudson Valley in 2018.

Residents can join together with the American Cancer Society to raise funds and awareness in an effort to free the world from the pain and suffering of cancer by participating, volunteering, fundraising or sponsoring Relay For Life.

Volunteers Needed

Residents from each community will help attack cancer from every angle through planning, fundraising, set up, promotion and marketing, securing sponsors, organizing a cancer survivor reception, planning opening ceremonies, event logistics, security and entertainment.  “Whether you can offer a few hours or can help throughout the spring, the American Cancer Society has a role for you to become involved in this community movement,” said Kris Revelle of the American Cancer Society.
