As chairwoman of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Brunswick volunteer planning committee, I would like to thank area residents for their generosity and support. Over 70 teams participated in this year’s event and raised more than $112,000 to help the society’s fight for every birthday, threatened by every cancer, here and throughout the world. This outstanding show of support proves that the people of the greater Brunswick community stand shoulder to shoulder with the American Cancer Society to achieve its mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures, and fighting back. We were honored to be joined by more than 150 survivors who walked the opening Survivors Lap, officially kicking off this year’s event. These survivors are the reason we continue the fight. Their participation inspires hope in those currently battling cancer.
A special thanks to the many Relay For Life volunteers who worked to make this event a success. The Relay For Life committee did an outstanding job of putting the event together. Committee members are Carrie Barnett, Theresa Barry, Eliza Brooks, Brenda Lane, Olivia LeRoy, Julia Levesque-LeRoy, Wendy McKenney, Kate Menendez, Traci Moeller, Darcie Moore, Dottie Riendeau, Emily Sampson, Bruce Stockford, and Ken Stockford.
We also appreciate the generosity of this year’s corporate sponsors and the many local businesses that generously donated products and services. Relay For Life would not be possible without their support.
