2014 Relay for Life of Newtown

  • Successful Newtown Relay Offered Hope, Healing, Fun, And A Few Tears

    More than a few people at Newtown’s milestone 10th Relay for Life brushed away tears while viewing photos of loved ones lost on the event’s wall of remembrance, during the poignant opening ceremonies, and during the luminary procession.

    But the combination of fair weather, camaraderie, and nonstop, upbeat activities helped put smiles on most faces throughout the 12-hour American Cancer Society fund and awareness raiser that was on hold for more than a year.

  • Relay Volunteers Paint Newtown Purple, Seek Hair Donations

    The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Newtown has kicked off its “Paint the Town Purple” campaign to create awareness about cancer. Purple ribbons will be displayed up to the Newtown event held on overnight from Saturday, May 31, to Sunday, June 1, at Newtown High School’s Blue & Gold Stadium.
