Alla Kramer, one of the ten star dancers in this season’s 9th Annual Dancing with Vero’s Stars, is the three time Chairman for Relay for Life of the Beaches  to be held at Riverside Park on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

The official kickoff was held November 29th at The Walking Tree Brewery with 40 actively involved participants in the event registering new teams and setting goals for 2017. This year’s theme, “One Wish, Two Wish, I Wish for a Cure,” is designed  to increase awareness and fundraising with the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who are currently fighting cancer get all the support they need, and that eventually one day, cancer will be eliminated.

Locals can help Relay for Life of the Beaches by sponsoring, registering a team, joining the committee, or making a donation by calling staff partner Jenny Davis 772-562-2272 x 2406 or emailing
