The American Cancer Society with the Bronx Chamber of Commerce are currently seeking community volunteers to help organize and participate in its Relay For Life event being planned for July 16, 2011.

Come learn what the American Cancer Society is doing to fight cancer and how you can get involved in Relay For Life..

Relay For Life is a 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 & 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 event will take place on Wednesday, March 30, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in  Hutch Metro Center, 1200 Waters Place, Bronx, NY 10461.
