    The 3rd annual Bridgeport Relay for Life was held at Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet Campus on May 19th, 2017. Over 750 people formed teams that represented many Bridgeport schools, community organizations, and other groups that participated in the charity event. Together, we were able to raise over $20,000 for the event, bringing our overall total to $70,000 over three years!

     All of the proceeds from the Bridgeport Relay for Life of Bridgeport benefit the American Cancer Society, which acts to support survivors, serve those currently battling, and increase awareness. The 2017 event saw students, parents, staff and other Bridgeport residents working together for this common cause - Eida Rivera, a cancer survivor and Bridgeport parent, delivered the keynote speech; Emily Kolodziej, a cancer survivor and senior at Fairchild Wheeler HS, delivered the Luminaria Ceremony 'Fight Back' speech.

    This year, we are excited to host our 4th Annual Bridgeport Relay for Life on June 1st, 2018. (1pm-1am)
