Relay for Life Forms Eastern Putnam Event

The Brewster and Patterson Relay For Life events have merged to form the Eastern Putnam Relay for the 2024 season, announced the American Cancer Society recently.

“Our newly formed Eastern Putnam Relay committee is excited to cast a wider net and bring these and other communities in Putnam together in working toward a future free from cancer,” said ACS Senior Development Manager Kate Corsitto. “All are welcome. It is together with our survivors, caregivers, volunteers and participants that we can raise awareness and FUNdraise to support our mission to end cancer as we know it, for everyone.”

Relay For Life of Eastern Putnam will take place Saturday, June 8 from 3 to 10 p.m. at the Brewster High School. The day will showcase a complimentary survivor dinner donated by Aversano’s Restaurant, as well as a DJ, local entertainment and bands, Zumba, vendors, a silent auction, handbag bingo and other various activities.

Reflect and remember those lost as you walk the track, and commence the evening with the signature luminaria ceremony as participants pay tribute and remember all who have previously fought, and those who continue the fight cancer.

Anyone and everyone is invited to start a fundraising team – survivors, caregiverw, teachers, students, businesses, local officials, families, churches and other faith organizations, etc. Get started at

In 2024, more than 1.9 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S., and more than 600,000 Americans will die from cancer. Relay For Life has raised more than $6.8 billion to support efforts to find a cure since 1985, and the Relay for Life events in the lower Hudson Valley, and Fairfield County, Conn., aim to add to that figure.

The American Cancer Society is a leading cancer-fighting organization with a vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. For more than 100 years, it has been improving the lives of people with cancer and their families as the only organization combating cancer through advocacy, research and patient support.
