We All Wear the Ribbon

We live in an age where science has enabled 80-year-old men to continue procreating via a pill or two. And where bald men can grow hair by rubbing foam on their domes. Despite these extraordinary breakthroughs, cancer, one of the most devastating diseases known to man, still runs rampant. Fortunately, the good folks at the American Cancer Society are doing everything they can to find a cure, and helping them out is a cinch. Get involved by simply participating in Relay For Life of Downtown West Palm Beach at the Meyer Amphitheatre (105 Evernia St., W. Palm Beach). The relay begins on June 6th at 6:00 p.m. and lasts until 8:30 a.m. on June 7th. The reason the relay takes place during these unorthodox times is to remind everyone that cancer never sleeps, but we’re all thankful that the summer sun won’t be out for most of the relay, making running and walking much more comfortable. Call 561-650-0139, or visit www.acscan.org/relay for more information on the event and how to donate.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
