John Knox Village is dedicated to the fight against cancer by hosting our Annual Relay For Life Walk, celebrating an evening of life and hope. This year’s Relay For Life will be held on Thursday, March 5, at 6 p.m.
Similar to previous years, participants can expect an official Proclamation by the City of Pompano Beach, as well as information from various physicians and other guest speakers, followed by a dessert reception. The event will also feature a number of inspiring testimonials from resident and employee survivors.
Starting behind East Lake, Relay For Life will open with a special “sashing” ceremony, which honors those who won their courageous battle with cancer. Then, our attendees will take a group walk around Lake Maggie, which is beautifully lit with luminaries that recognize individuals who are battling with or have passed away from cancer. Relay For Life ends with the reception back at East Lake.
All donations raised from the event will go to the American Cancer Society and its extensive medical research efforts. Relay For Life is hosted in over 5,200 communities in 20 different countries and has raised over $400 million each year.
The 2014 JKV Relay For Life raised more than $7,000. The Village is aiming to surpass that number this year. There is a $10 donation minimum, which includes a Relay For Life t-shirt.
“Even if you are unable to make a contribution, this is a tremendous opportunity to support The Village and the cause by just attending the inspiring event,” said Michele Smith, Activities Manager. “It also means a lot to our residents and caregivers who need the support of others.”
