Moment of silence

Francis Smith of Yonkers stands inside the 71st Infantry Regiment’s memorial at Mount Hope Cemetery on Saturday, May 21. The regiment’s veteran association holds an annual ceremony at the cemetery in advance of Memorial Day. The memorial resembles a bunker on San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War.

12-hour cancer benefit walks away with a jackpot

By Kris DiLorenzo

The all-night Relay for Life of the Quad Villages, which began at 6 p.m. last Friday, May 20, at Mercy College, has raised $18,181.92 so far for the American Cancer Society (ACS). The event was organized by a committee chaired by Irvington resident Linda Whitehead, who is the village attorney for Hastings and serves on the advisory board of the ACS Westchester & Rockland Counties.

The relay follows in the footsteps of Dr. Gordy Klatt, who in May 1985 walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Wash., to raise money to fight cancer. Klatt’s effort brought in $27,000, and by the next year 340 participants walked in an overnight event.

The Relay for Life concept has caught on, with 20 countries participating, and so far has raised close to $5 billion to fight cancer.

This year’s Rivertowns event, which attracted about 150 participants, was held on the turf field at Mercy, which is normally used for baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey games. The field was marked off in a concentric pattern outlined by luminaria — white bags holding glow sticks later lit in memory of those who didn’t survive.
