In addition to supporting Lower Naugatuck Valley’s cancer survivors through its annual 5K Walk/Run, The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital is a Platinum Sponsor of the 2015 Relay For Life of Naugatuck Valley set for June 13-14 at the Riverwalk in Shelton.

Relay For Life is an overnight walk-a-thon that raises funds for the American Cancer Society’s cancer education and research.

Griffin Hospital recently hosted a dinner for area cancer survivors and caregivers, and is providing support with the event’s survivor recognition activities, including its survivor reception at the Relay and the Hope Tent, which offers food, refreshments and free massages for cancer survivors and caregivers.

The Relay For Life of Naugatuck Valley will have entertainment for families for 18 hours and there are opportunities for volunteer hours.
