Relay for Life is a unique event that represents 24 hours in the life of a cancer patient. Relay for Life celebrates and honors the people who are fighting the battle with cancer now, those who have WON their fight, those who have lost their battle with cancer and the caregivers who support them. It is a message of hope for a brighter future- a future without cancer! Proceeds from this event will be used to help the American Cancer Society raise cancer awareness, prevention, detection and support cancer research. Many of the programs that the ACS sponsors stay right here in our local community such as rides to treatments, breast and cervical cancer early detection programs, smoking cessation programs, Hope Lodge, Camp Hope, and many, many more.
Our Relay for Life team, The Zoo Crew, is hosting the 3rd Eastern Regional Carnival for a Cure, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2014 at the Brooklyn fairgrounds, Brooklyn, CT. which is located approximately 25 miles north of Foxwoods and the Mohegan Sun Casino’s. This year’s event will feature a full scale carnival complete with rides, games, food, crafters, live bands, and entertainment from all over the region.
