[ARCHIVED] Drucker Proudly Supports Plainview-Old Bethpage Community’s Relay for Life

WHAT – Nassau County Legislature Deputy Minority Leader Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) is proudly supporting the Plainview-Old Bethpage community’s 20th annual Relay for Life, which is set to step off on Saturday, June 1.

During the daylong event at Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School track, participants celebrate cancer survivors, remember all who have been lost, and recommit to fighting back against the disease as a community. Participants gather pledges and sell luminaria to raise funds in support of the American Cancer Society. To help Relayers keep their energy up throughout the event, various performances and other fun side events are scheduled during the day. 

As of May 10, organizers have already raised more than $40,000 in pursuit of a $100,000 overall goal.

“As a lifelong Plainview resident, it gives me great pride to see how my hometown’s generous spirit and willingness to fight for a great cause has sustained this Relay for Life for two decades,” Deputy Minority Leader Drucker said. “Cancer has touched nearly all of our lives, and I am looking forward to once again walking with my neighbors during and joining communities all across the country in coming together to conquer this insidious disease once and for all.”
