The annual Relay For Life event in Hancock County will be held on May 30-31, 2014 at the Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School. The Ellsworth event raises around $100,000 annually. 2014 will mark the 14th consecutive year that Bar Harbor Bank & Trust has participated in Relay for Life Hancock County. Over the last thirteen years combined Bar Harbor Bank & Trust employees have raised more than $130,000 through this event, for the American Cancer Society.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity with more than 4 million people in over 20 countries participating each year in this global phenomenon to raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Relay For Life offers everyone in the community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around the track during an 18-hour period. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. Those who participate celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and are doing what they can to help fight back against this disease.
