The Lunatics for a Cure is an American Cancer Society Relay for Life team. The Relay for Life is a yearly event put on nationwide in thousands of communities and is an event that focuses on raising money for the fight against all forms of cancer. It is also a time to celebrate our cancer survivors and remember those that we have lost to this disease. The Lunatics for a Cure is a team that was formed in 2013 and was able to fundraise close to $2,000, this year the teams has much loftier goals and has been fundraising since last June. The team is known locally for its “flamingo flocking” fundraiser which is where people pay money to have flocks of 20-50 pink yard flamingos placed onto the lawns of friends and family. The Lunatics are then responsible for sneaking the flock into yards and removing them 24 hours later! It’s a flocking good time!
“When we heard back saying our Relay for Life team, Lunatics for a Cure was going to be the sponsor, we screamed and jumped for joy!” said team member Amber. “We are so excited to be working with NR Road Racing to raise money for cancer research and enjoy a good run in the process!”
