Westy Self Storage in Wilton, Conn., is hosting the Feb. 6 kickoff for the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Relay For Life race at Wilton High School, which will take place May 31. The kickoff is open to community members interested in participating in race and begins at 6 p.m.
Held in Westy’s grand lobby at 65 Danbury Road, the event will feature a keynote speech from ACS Honorary Chair Gene Fehrer. It will also include information about joining the event-planning committee, becoming a team captain, volunteering, prizes and refreshments.
"We are so grateful to Westy Self Storage for again hosting our kickoff event. They are dedicated community partners,” Sara Augenbraun, chairperson of the 2014 Relay For Life, told the source. “It is refreshing to know that our evening will run smoothly and take place in a picturesque setting. It will be a great start for the relay.”
Launched in 1985 by Dr. Gordy Klatt, Relay For Life fundraising events are now held around the country. The overnight walk includes teams of people who camp out around a track and take turns walking. The events also include food, games and other entertainment. Relay For Life has raised nearly $5 billion to fight cancer.
Founded in 1990, Westy Self Storage is headquartered in Stamford, Conn. The company's portfolio of facilities spans the tri-state area of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
