Come join Havayah and the rest of TBE as we walk to raise money for the fight against cancer in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life! This year, our Havayah Tikkun Olam team has led the charge in organizing Havayah’s participation in this extraordinary effort of repairing the world. Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. During a Relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they've overcome. We remember people lost to the disease, and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer. The event inspires Relay participants to take action against a disease that has taken too much.
Join your friends from Havayah by walking and or cheering as we fight cancer together. Stop by the Havayah Tent site to hang out, enjoy the day, nosh, and to be a part of this incredible event.
Date: May 16th
Location: Newman Elementary School, Needham
