Relay for Life in Naples, FL was a success.
Florida Home Realty's Andrew Occhipinti participated in Relay for Life April 15th in Naples, FL. The Naples Relay for Life event is one of the largest in the State of Florida and it raises money for cancer research.
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
