The 2011 Pinecrest Relay for Life was a community success. The committee and teams of the Candyland Relay thank all of the Pinecrest residents, businesses, schools, and neighboring communities for their enthusiastic support. The Relay raised over $110,000 to help with the American Cancer Society’s mission of research, advocacy and development of community support systems for those touched by cancer.
Pinecrest Relay 2011 was chaired by Debra Strochak and Mayor Cindy Lerner. Their energy and enthusiasm harnessed the grassroots effort of the community, bringing Pinecrest into the mix of Relay for Life, the No. 1 non-profit program worldwide.
This success and spirit of caring is continuing full steam ahead with planning for the 2012 Pinecrest Relay for Life. In September, there was an enthusiastic turnout for the kickoff event at Bargello Bistro in The Falls. The theme for the Feb. 25 Relay for Life is Romantic Movies and teams are hurrying to secure their favorite choices. Teams come from across the spectrum that is Pinecrest — schools, churches, synagogues, book clubs, businesses, scouts, friends and families. You will want to be part of this year’s event, whether as a team member, volunteer, committee member or cancer survivor attending the Survivor Lap on Feb. 25. Here’s a look at some of the movies already chosen:
“Mama Mia,” if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. It’s “Up” to you to make this “AWalk to Remember”.
“It Could Happen to You” so don’t let any “Big Fat Greek Wedding” keep you away. Even though some of the food might have a little “Grease” we know that you have a “Braveheart” and won’t want to miss this incredible “Saturday Night (Relay) Fever.”
This is an opportunity for a family fun experience guaranteed to touch your heart and lives. Consider being part of this event that helps to celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer. You can participate by using your best talents to form a team, be on the committee, be a sponsor or donate to honor someone you care for.
