Relay For Life is the main volunteer-driven cancer fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. Millions of people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon. It is estimated that Relay For Life events have raised over $3 billion to date.
George McHugh, CHR President Property Management, started a Relay For Life team called Geo’s Army in 2010. Geo’s Army is active again this year and George is the captain of the Stoneham Relay For Life team.
“I’m a survivor of head and neck cancer,” says George. “On the day of my last chemo treatment in 2009, my cousin introduced me to Relay for Life. I was emotionally affected to see so many cancer survivors, their families and friends celebrating life and fighting this terrible disease. My family and I have been involved every year since. I want everyone to know how much I personally appreciate their generosity."
