South Shore Relay for Life to host Barrel House Z fundraiser April 2
WEYMOUTH – The Greater South Shore Relay for Life team is kicking off its fundraising season next weekend in preparation for a summer event that will see thousands raised for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
Relay for Life of Greater South Shore will hold its first fundraiser of the year from 1 to 3 p.m. April 2 at the Barrel House Z brewery, 95 Woodrock Road, Weymouth. The theme for the event is #EveryStepBringsHope.
Relay for Life is the signature fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. For more than 36 years, communities across the world have come together to honor and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. The society, a volunteer-driven nonprofit, supports thousands of groups across the country as they host Relay for Life events that see community members take turns walking around a track lined with luminaria bags. Attendees have the opportunity to cheer for local survivors or participate as a survivor in the first lap of the day. Caregivers of cancer patients are then invited to join the survivors, and volunteers follow.
Participants camp out overnight and volunteers take turns walking around the track while food, games and entertainment are provided. The annual event will take place June 3 at the Norfolk County sheriff's office, 2015 Washington St., Braintree.
