The 14th annual Relay for Life will take place Saturday, June 3 at Dennis Alley Park in Oak Bluffs.


Dozens of members of the Vineyard community circled around and around the high school track on Saturday, in groups or alone, for the annual Relay for Life of Martha’s Vineyard.


On Saturday and Sunday, over 100 participants comprising 15 teams took part in the annual Relay for Life cancer benefit. “It’s a great event to bring together people in the community,” said event chair Nicole Gazaille. “To honor those who are still fighting, and remember those that we’ve lost.”


On a cool, breezy day with nearly-summer sunshine, Islanders of all ages were in high spirits as they walked laps around the regional high school track Saturday. The annual walkathon is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

On Saturday, May 31, the 11th annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Martha’s Vineyard takes place at the MVRHS track. Participants will take turns walking around the track from 1 p.m. Saturday until 8:30 a.m. Sunday to celebrate cancer survivors, honor those who have lost the battle and raise awareness for cancer prevention.


The American Cancer Society held its Relay for Life benefit walk yesterday and last night at the MVRHS track. There were games, cotton candy, food and tents where walkers could rest and share their stories. All day and all night families and friends from every part of the community walked to raise money for the fight against cancer. They were also paying tribute, step by step in solidarity, to all those who have fought, or all still fighting, this disease.
