WALL, N.J., May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Students and staff of Cortiva Institute School of Massage Therapy Wall, NJ will be participating in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraising event.
The event will be held at Wall High School from Friday, May 20 at 5 p.m. to Saturday, May 21 at 7 a.m.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
"Of course cancer has touched many of our lives. We are really pleased to be able to give back to the community by offering massage therapy to the participants who will be walking throughout the night. The students are also excited by this unique opportunity," said Denise Lombardi, Clinic Director of Cortiva Institute Wall, NJ campus.
