What is Relay for Life?
Great Relay for Life Event held on Saturday, June 20th at Burnham’s Field. What a wonderful cause.
Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. During a Relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they’ve overcome. We remember people lost to the disease, and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer.
The event inspires Relay participants to take action against a disease that has taken too much.
Captain Heath Ellis and Michael O’Leary entertain quests on the schooner Thomas E. Lannon with Celtic Music and a brisk sail ending with a great sunset. A great evening.
Great day for the races! As has been the case recently, the Canadian team was too strong registering wins in the mixed, Juniors, Masters and Open races, while the USA team’s Women had a big win and put the team on the board. The Masters Race was highlighted by the boats coming together after the start, but after getting oars back in the right places went on to complete their race. The Open Race.. WOW! The win was decided at the finish line!

May 12, 2015 marks 4 years since my surgery and subsequent diagnosis with a grade IV brain tumor (Glioblastoma Multiforme). Thanks to my doctors and clinical care nurses in the Neuro-Oncology group at MGH, my beautiful wife and best friend Bonnie and three sons Jake, Liam and Ethan, I have outlived the average prognosis of six to fourteen months. I’ll join my family (Family Ties) this year to once again walk the Cape Ann Relay for Life. I feel very passionate about trying to give back since I feel like I have been blessed with the life I’ve been re-given and would be remiss if I didn’t try to give back to others fighting this battle. Our family walks to support those that are suffering in so many ways with a cancer diagnosis. We walk to honor the people that have come before us that have contributed their time, money and emotional effort to battle cancer so that those that followed them, like me, have more hope. We walk to help stay positive and treat not just the symptoms but the spirit of those dealing with cancer. I know each of us face trials in our lives, but the lesson I’ve learned is that it is not what happens to you (since we all face adversity in our lives), but how we choose to deal with our challenges and live our lives that will define us. So we support each other, we walk and we believe that we will see the day when will win this battle again cancer that creates so much fear and suffering. With progress on the horizon, we continue to work together to raise awareness and money to fund research and to support families dealing with a cancer diagnosis. These strides forward are made possible with fundraising efforts, such as the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
See you all on the 20th of June
