I can’t find call letters or abbreviations for Gloucester.
Rockport is RPT
Does Gloucester have an abbreviation?

Thank you for supporting Relay For Life of Cape Ann!

Announcing big changes for 2015 Relay For Life!

As chairs of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Cape Ann, we would like to thank everyone for their generosity and support. Twenty teams joined in this year’s Relay For Life and raised over $46,000 to help save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Despite the rain, there were smiles on everyone’s faces and we were so proud that Cape Ann was “United to Finish the Fight.”
We would like to thank the many Relay For Life volunteers, committee members, and teams who worked to make this year’s event a success. Our committee members were Nicole Bauke, Lorinda Canty, Carol Clark, Kathy Golemon, Brenda Leahy, Dan Leahy, Suzanne Leathers, Jane Noble, Paul Richards, Sam Santuccio, Donna Saunders, Audie Tarr and Lisa Zellenka. Their tireless efforts were invaluable.

Our top fundraising teams were:

· Family Ties                                        $12,678

· Friends for Friends                        $7,112

· Christians for a Cure
(First Baptist Church)                $6,642.43

· Rockin’ For a Cure                          $4,838.61

· Heaven Can Wait                           $4,149

Our top fundraising individuals were:

· Dexter Murray                                $4,935

· Suzanne Leathers                          $2,116.29

· Lisa Zellenka                                     $1,983

We certainly want to thank our corporate sponsors: Dunkin Donuts; Addison Gilbert Hospital, a member of Lahey Health; Pratty’s C.A.V.; Cape Ann Sportsman’s Club; Vadala Real Estate; Amcomm Wireless and Proteus Industries for their support which made all of this possible.

The following businesses donated goods and/or services and/or hosted fundraising events for our teams: Elk’s Club at Bass Rocks, Mike’s Pizza, Azorean, Gloucester Rentals, Jalapeno’s, Cruiseport , Shaw’s, Stop & Shop, Cape Ann Coffees, City of Gloucester – DPW, Cape Ann Lanes, AGH Dining Services, Market Basket, Donut Jim’s, Audrey’s Flowers, Russell’s Florists, Magnolia Library, Domino’s, Magnolia House of Pizza, La Rosa’s/Nonni’s, Poseidon’s, and Leonardo’s, Yellow Sub and  Jenny-Cakes. Our thanks to local media for promoting the Relay and our fundraisers: Good Morning Gloucester, Gloucester Daily Times, The Cape Ann Beacon and The Bridge.

The 2015 Relay For Life will be a new and exciting one for Cape Ann! We will be moving to the newly renovated Burnham’s Field in downtown Gloucester and changing the timeframe to allow more people to participate. The 2015 Relay For Life of Cape Ann will be Saturday, June 20 from 12:00 noon to 10:00 p.m., ending with the Luminaria ceremony. It is our hope that the extended daytime hours, move to a weekend day and elimination of overnight hours will allow more people to participate. We invite all in the community to come out to celebrate, remember and fight back with us next June at Burnham’s Field!

We are in the process of putting together our event leadership team for 2015. Many exciting changes are in store for 2015 making it easier for more people to become involved in Relay For Life. If you would like to help make next year’s event an even bigger success and work toward the time we no longer hear the words “you have cancer,” please contact Darlene Riley at

We’ll be planning a fun event in late fall to kick off the 2015 Relay season… look for more info soon!
