Clifton Looking Great In Purple!

CLIFTON, NJ – Have you noticed a little bit more purple in Clifton lately? The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Clifton teams are “PAINTING THE TOWN PURPLE”. The purple ribbons are to raise awareness that those lives lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that  those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. All traffic intersections have been tied with purple ribbons and they can be seen blowing beautifully on a windy day.

The Relay for Life of Clifton will be held from 4:00 PM -12 midnight on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at Clifton Stadium.  To celebrate the 15th Relay for Life in Clifton, the theme of this year’s Relay is “Going 15 Rounds Against Cancer”. Make a commitment to be a part of Clifton’s Relay for Life.

If you would like to start a team, visit the website If you are a survivor, please join online and walk with us in our Survivor Lap.

When you see the purple ribbons, remember Relay for Life. There is no finish line until we find a CURE!

We hope you smile and remember a loved one, when you see the purple ribbons!
