Cancer Relay Kicks Off 10th Year In Rockaway
One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. This summer marks the 10th year that Rockaway residents will step up to the plate to help find a cure by taking part in the Rockaway Relay For Life at Riis Park.
The ACS hosted the annual kickoff dinner at the Irish Circle on March 12. The American Cancer Society's John Link and Tameron Ackley, the Queens Regional Vice President, rallied the troops to make this year's June 27 to June 28 event the best yet.
