On June 9th, 2018, several hundred participants will join together at the annual Relay For Life of Southern Chautauqua County at Frewsberg to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. The event starts at Noon.

Local volunteer, Bonnie Pfleuger, passionately educates her local neighborhood about the 9pm luminaria ceremony so all cancer patients have the opportunity to be remembered but encourages everyone to attend the event throughout the day. She very strongly feels no one should ever be forgotten and this is a great opportunity to honor their memory.

The American Cancer Society is the cause fighting cancer on every front; standing shoulder to shoulder with cancer patients and those supporting them. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.

Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Washington in 1985, the Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Symbolizing the battle waged by those facing cancer, the event will be from Noon until 10 pm and empowers communities to take a stand against cancer.

In addition to the support of the community, Relay For Life of Southern Chautauqua County is also supported by many local businesses and organizations. This year’s sponsors include: UPMC: Hillman Cancer Center, Heidenhain, El Greco, Howard Hanna Hold. Wegmans and others.
