Relay for Life – Hoboken
“One day. One night. One community. Relay For Life is about celebration, remembrance, and hope. By participating, you honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives we’ve lost to the disease, and raise money to help fight it all right here in your community. You won’t want to miss one moment of this life- and community- affirming event!
Fighting cancer is a serious effort, both for those facing the disease and those working to save lives, diminish suffering from cancer, and eliminate the disease as a major health problem once and for all. You too can be a part of the mission to defeat cancer by taking part in the American Cancer Society’s signature event, Relay For Life. No matter how you choose to participate – as a donor, a team member, or a survivor – you have the power to fight back against a disease that affects millions.
When you take part in Relay, you join people around the world in celebrating those how have survived cancer, remember the people we’ve lost, and supporting the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society. And as you raise funds and spread awareness, you are helping deliver hope that future generations will not have to endure cancer threatening the lives of their friends and family.
