Relay For Life of Old Bridge

The Family and Friends of Jim O'Grady

Welcome to the Family and Friends of Jim O'Grady team page!

Cancer impacted our family when seven years ago Jim O'Grady passed away after a year long battle with esophageal cancer. He was a wonderful husband and father of Nicole and Danny who lost their dad when they were only 12 and 9 years old.

So, this year, we're late to the party. So many things have consumed us throughout the year. We have 17 days to meet or beat our $5000.00 goal. Our first year we raised over $7000.00 and were named the top fundraising team for the event.

We know personally the impact that cancer has on a family and we would love nothing more than to help spare another family from enduring the loss that we have and help to save lives.

Cancer has touched so many of us in some way, so we decided to fight back by raising funds and walking in our local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event on May 18, 2019 from 3:00pm to midnight.

As a team, we are taking action to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem. At our Relay event, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in their lifesaving mission.

Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time. Any donation no matter the amount makes a difference and can help to save a life.

Thank you for your continued support of our family.And pleasecome out in June to see and support us and hang out for a while if you can.

Love,

Jeanine, Nicole and Danny O'Grady

HOW FUNDRAISING IMPACTS YOUR COMMUNITY

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

$410 million as of
august 2018

Funding potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

1.34 million in 2017

Calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support.

Nearly
452 thousand in 2017

Nights of free lodging provided to patients at Hope Lodge® communities.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
