Community to support childhood cancer research


ELDRED, NY — On Sunday, September 7, volunteers of all ages from across the U.S. will participate in the fifth annual Human Line of Hope. Participating teams will gather together while each person holds a letter, spelling out the name or phrase of their choice while standing in line. Messages can spell out the names of loved ones lost to cancer or words of inspiration. Each letter requires a donation, with all proceeds benefitting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven and donor-centered charity dedicated to funding childhood cancer research.

The local Human Line of Hope & Conga Against Cancer will be at the four corners in Eldred. There will also be head shaving, a tricky tray and a 50/50 drawing. It all starts at 12 noon. To make a donation or get more information visit www.stbaldricks.org/event/conga, or call 845/557-3321. The first Human Line of Hope was organized in 2008 by Lou Monteleone in Eldred.
