Wow, Bedford! We did it again! Thank you so much for joining us at our 14th Relay For Life! We exceeded our goal of $40,000! Truly amazing! It was a wonderful day filled with sunshine!

We couldn’t have done it without all of you – all our Participants/Teams, Survivors & Caregivers, Chaperones, Speakers, Sponsors, Donors, Friends/Family, Local Businesses, School Administrators/Faculty/Staff, BHSPA, MSPA, BEST-PTO, DPW, Fire Department, Police Department, and Bedford Recreation Department …definitely a town/team effort!

Thank you for all of your support throughout the year … from Bedford Day, to our restaurant fundraisers, movie night and bake sales … our fight to end cancer is a year-long commitment!

So proud of our fabulous committee of 20 BHS students and the awesome adults that were part of this year’s committee!

Kudos to Team Floating Lanterns for being our top fundraising team and raising over $7,000! Awesome!

Kudos to Emily Sollecito for being our top fundraiser! Along with Ana Protasowicki, Amber Hurley, Antranig Douglas and Eva Boruchovich who all raised over $1,000! Amazing!

Thank you to Charlie Humphrey, BHS AFJROTC Aerospace Science Instructor, for his courageous speech; to Talitha Dantas for beautifully singing the National Anthem; to the AFJROTC Color Guard; to Jennifer Buckley of GrooveWrx for dancing with us; and to Jeff Hoyland for his amazing pictures – Click this link to see all of Jeff’s images on Bedford Snapshot’s Facebook page!

Thanks to Music & Memories for Rob & Mitch, our DJ’s, and Ricky at our photo booth!

Special thanks to Matt Eckhardt, our American Cancer Society staff partner, for all his support so that we could have a successful Relay and to Tova Margolis for being our BHS Advisor!

We will be starting to plan our 2020 Relay soon. If you are interested in joining our committee, please email us at bedfordmarelayforlife@gmail.com.
