Relay for Life of Quaker Valley

This weekend, Quaker Valley chapter of American Cancer Society's Relay for Life hosted yet another successful annual fundraising event at the Sewickley Heights Golf Club.  This year's event called "Cooking for a Cure" was themed around French cuisine made by Chef Martin Thomas and was hosted by WPXI news-anchor Newlin Archinal.  

Dr. Michael Sherry is a local oncologist and this year's honoree, and paid tribute to the work and medical influence of Pittsburgh native Dr. Bernie Fisher.  According to Sherry, Fisher could be considered one of the top five cancer researchers in the world, spearheading innovative cancer treatments and dedicating over 26 years to finding a cure for cancer.   

The Quaker Valley Relay for Life will be held this year on June 1st at 12pm at QVHS in Leetsdale. The theme is "Hope in the Sand" and will feature the survivor walk, live music, crafts and games for the kids, the luminary ceremony, fireworks, Touch a Truck display, and a Fight Back event. You won't want to miss this chance to participate in such a meaningful event!
