30th Annual Relay For Life of Racine!

For the 23rd consecutive year, SSE was honored to serve as DJ & MC at the Relay For Life of Racine!  This year’s theme was “Pirates of the Cure-ibbean” and the entire Relay community came together to make cancer walk the plank!  During the opening ceremonies we were excited to hear from our Event Lead Amy Helvick, our ACS Staff Partner Maddie Petre, Dr. Vera Tarrakanova, Honorary Survivor Chris Otto, and Honorary Caregiver Julie Matusiak.  The Survivor Lap kicked off the festivities, and later in the evening we gathered to reflect on those who lost their battle with cancer during the emotional Luminary Ceremony.  There were plenty of fun activities to keep attendees of all ages entertained, including our overnight “Movie in the Park!”  Events like Relay remind us why we can never stop raising funds and fighting back against cancer.  Huge thanks to the entire Event Leadership Team, and everyone who came out to take part in this memorable and meaningful event.  Walk On!
