18- Hour Relay for Life at Shea Stadium

The American Cancer Society’s 6th Annual Relay for Life gets underway at 6:00 p.m. Friday, June 16 with an opening lap by cancer survivors around the track at Shea Stadium. After that, the challenge is on for each of the many 8-15 member volunteer teams to keep at least one of their walkers on the track at all times over the next 18 hours as a reminder that cancer is constant and never sleeps, either.

If you’d like to register a team or make a donation to support a team participating in the relay, click here for all the info. To date, almost $34,000 has been donated for this local event:
