Relay For Life of Boyertown Kickoff Event: Rocking for the Start of the 2014 Relay Season

The Relay For Life of Boyertown is getting ready to rock for the 2014 Season. If you haven’t had a chance yet to see what all the fuss is about, this is the perfect time. On Monday, Oct. 14, at 6:30p.m. at Good Shepherd UCC at 35 W. Philadelphia Ave in Boyertown, the Relay For Life of Boyertown will be hosting the 2014 Kick-off event.

This year, the theme will be “Melodies of Hope”. To set the mood for the evening, they encourage everyone to wear their favorite music decade, dress like your favorite band, or just wear a rockin’ outfit. Use your imagination-you might be surprised what you’ll come up with. Throughout the evening, there will be prize giveaways, food and a 50/50 raffle.

Last year’s Relay For Life of Boyertown raised over $212,000. They had 45 teams registered, over 680 participants, 194 survivors attend, over $15,500 in corporate sponsorships, and a record attendance at Relay weekend. They are hoping to exceed those numbers this year and need your help. Be sure to invite everyone you know to join them for the 2014 Relay For Life of Boyertown Kick-off event. Family, friends, neighbors, anyone who you think may be interested is invited to come.

The Relay For Life of Boyertown inaugural event occurred in 2008. The event raises money for the American Cancer Society which in turn is saving lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. In addition to research, the American Cancer Society funds a variety of free programs and services to those facing cancer locally. To learn how to help, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.

“As we enter a new relay season we first need to thank all of those who made the 2013 relay so successful, from the teams to the survivor/caregivers, to all who showed support. We have begun the 2014 Relay For Life of Boyertown with 22 teams already registered! We invite everyone to our rockin’ kickoff to relay on October 14th as we begin another unforgettable relay!” said Ashley Solazzo, Relay co-chair.

Be sure to mark your calendar for Relay For Life of Boyertown’s event June 21-22, 2014. This year’s event will be taking place at the Boyertown Community Park.
