Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Grateful for Relay for Life support

As event co-chairs of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Lockport, we would like to sincerely thank the residents of Lockport and surrounding communities for their continued generosity and support. A total of 68 teams participated in this year’s event, raising over $128,000 for the American Cancer Society’s research, education, advocacy and service programs.  The outstanding support received proves our community is truly committed to finishing the fight against cancer.

We would like to thank the survivors and their families who bravely came out and demonstrated their commitment to the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.  Each individual on the track had a story to share that will continue to inspire and motivate others as we work to eliminate cancer.

In addition, we would like to extend our gratitude to our truly remarkable committee. This event, now in its 13th year, would not be possible without the year-round commitment of these dedicated volunteers. Their valuable contributions make this overnight celebration of life momentous and meaningful to all in attendance. Often, these devoted individuals sacrifice much of themselves, including time spent with family and friends, to ensure that Relay For Life of Lockport is a meaningful experience for cancer survivors, their caregivers, and the individuals who have lost their loved ones to this disease.

Lastly, we would like to thank our beloved American Cancer Society Staff Partner, Jane Dent, and her incredible husband, Rick.  Jane’s drive and passion to end cancer motivates every member of our committee, keeping us strong and resolute, and her enthusiasm is contagious. Rick’s dedication to a cancer-free world is evident in his every action, working tirelessly to ensure the Relay For Life of Lockport is a success year after year. Rick and Jane are truly inspirational role models and we are fortunate to work alongside them.
