12th Annual Relay for Life Returns to Hoboken Saturday
The 12th annual Relay for Life of Hoboken returns Saturday to Pier A.

The event, filled with live music, fitness classes and food, will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Teams of family and friends will gather at Pier A and take turns walking laps around the park to maintain one team member on the track at all times to represent the constant fight against cancer.

The relay also raises awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society while remembering those lost to the disease, celebrate survivors and honor caregivers.

The Relay for Life has raised more than $1 million over the past 11 years in Hoboken. The funds raised benefit the American Cancer Society, focusing on research, education, advocacy and patient services.
