The Milford Relay For Life has already raised over $80,000 for the fight against cancer, but the real show starts at 6 p.m. Friday at Milford Middle School.
1 Milford’s annual fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society is set for 6 p.m. Friday, June 17, at Milford Middle School. Volunteers will walk the track and collect donations all night, with the most dedicated staying until 8 a.m. on Saturday.
2 The night opens with a Survivors’ Walk, honoring members of the Milford community who’ve survived their battles with cancer. There’s still time for survivors to register; the track opens at 4:30 p.m. for sign-ups.
3 So far the 36 Relay teams have raised over $85,000, with more to come on the night of the Relay itself. Every team will have sales, contests or promotions running at its tent, and the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society
Why you should attend
“Even if you’re not registered yet you can still register and walk the track. Every campsite is selling something at their campsite. Whatever they sell, that money goes towards Relay and the fight against cancer.”
— Tina Faulkner
Milford Relay for Life chair
What’s new this year?
The theme is “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Every cancer has a color — pink for breast cancer is the most famous, but teal stands for ovarian cancer, light blue for prostate cancer, green for the kidneys, and so on down the spectrum. Every tent will be decorated either in a single color or, for those who’ve been touched by many forms of cancer, the entire rainbow.
