The Relay For Life Team S.J. Eagles Wings was formed in the Fall of 2009 by a group of parishioners, family members and friends (many of who are still active team members today) who wanted to become a part of the Relay scheduled for June, 2010. The team’s goal was to help provide support to those fighting against a disease that takes too much - CANCER. And, to let those fighting know they do not fight alone.

The team is now planning for the June 2020 Relay (our eleventh Relay) starting with a bake sale the first weekend in October. New members are always welcome!
