Thanks For Supporting ACS!

Thanks For Supporting ACS!

Dear Editor;

On behalf of this year's American Cancer Society Relay For Life committee, I would like to thank the residents of the Rockaways and the neighboring communities for their generosity and support. Approximately 600 people participated in Relay For Life this year at Beach Channel High School on June 8 through June 9, raising more than $46,000 for the American Cancer Society's programs of research, education, advocacy and patient services.

I applaud the many survivors that kicked-off the Relay by participating in the opening survivor recognition lap. They are the reason we continue the fight and it reminds us all of how important early detection truly is.

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 pulling the community together and we would not have been able to do it without them.

We also appreciate the generosity of this year's sponsors -- HIP Health Plans and Waldbaum's -- for their contributions and participation in this year's Relay For Life.

Again, thank you for supporting the American Cancer Society, and remember, it's not too early to become involved in Relay For Life for next year. To find out how, contact your local American cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345.
