Like so many at the 2017 Relay for Life in Langley Friday night, Emily Taylor Adams has been touched by cancer.

The Brewster Relay joined Relays for Life in Mahopac and Patterson which are two of the more successful events nationwide.

Bernier explained the goal of the Relay for Life teams, and how the commitment of the volunteers is integral to the success of the American Cancer Society. Her seven-year old daughter, Grace, is a survivor.

In total about 800 registered participants took part in the event this year, they added. Relay for life of Tom Green County hosted "Bowling for Boobies", Saturday.

"Cancer is something that never sleeps, so we go for 24 hours", explained Bernier.

Numerous attendees commented that they felt the Depot Street location also gave the Relay a more intimate feel, rather than the wide-open space at the GMS track. "Another one of our awesome volunteers, Tina Aulabaugh of Brewster, a year ago organized a team and took part in the Patterson Relay".

Proceeds from the Relay for Life benefits ACS-supported research and patient services programs, Olmstead noted. For more information visit relayforlife.org/GoshenNY or call Kris Revelle at 234-8853.
