Councilwoman Kane kicks off Relay for Life at Cherry Hill East

Last weekend, Councilwoman Melinda Kane kicked off the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life at Cherry Hill High School East. The annual walk raises money for cancer research at locations across the United States. Saturday's event was a beautiful day, with 23 teams and 268 individuals signed up to participate. Cherry Hill's event has so far raised more than $69,000 for the American Cancer Society; fundraising will continue until Aug. 31. Last year's South Jersey events raised more than $1 million. Thank you to all who participated in this year's event, for proudly representing Cherry Hill for such an important cause.
