February 06, 2024, PARAMUS, NJ – Relay For Life of Paramus (Relay), a community event benefitting the American Cancer Society (ACS), is excited to announce plans for its 12th annual Relay For Life on Friday, May 10, 2024, from 6pm-2am, at East Brook Middle School located at 190 Spring Valley Road in Paramus, NJ.

The Relay event celebrates, honors, and remembers those affected by cancer. According to the latest report from ACS, there are expected to be over 57,000 new cancer cases in New Jersey in 2024. Support from events such as Relay helps ACS provide educational resources, fund research into groundbreaking treatments, and provide free rides and lodging for cancer patients receiving treatment.

Paramus held its first Relay in 2013 and has since raised over $1 million for the ACS. Erika DiPasquale founded the event when she was a Junior at Paramus High School and continues as an active member of the volunteer Event Leadership Team.

“It’s amazing to see how the event has grown and how so many community members look forward to participating each year. I’m excited to see participants and teams from our first Relay in 2013 who join us each year as well as those participating with us for the first time.”

During the event, teams of participants will “relay” the responsibility of maintaining at least one member walking throughout the entire event. Meanwhile, participants can also enjoy food from local restaurants, try their luck at winning gift baskets in the Tricky Tray raffle, and compete in one of the many games and competitions the Event Leadership Team will be hosting.

Valley Health System remains a prominent corporate supporter of the event and is excited to participate this year with the move of its main hospital to its new Paramus campus. Beyond its corporate sponsorship, Valley will be represented by a large team of employees extending the health system’s more than 20 years of participation in Relay For Life events.

Relay is free to attend, however registration online or by phone is required. More details, including personal fundraising and corporate sponsorship opportunities, can be found online at or by calling 1-800-227-2345.
