Sonesta Hilton Head Island Relay For Life

April 16,2013, Hilton Head Island, S.C.- Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island raised more than $3,100 for the American Cancer Society through its Hilton Head Relay For Life team on Friday, April 12, 2013. Eighteen Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island employees participated in the relay and all proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society hosts Relay For Life events around the world, where relay teams camp out overnight and take turns running or walking for 24 hours to remember loved ones lost and raise funds for cancer research.

"Relay For Life is a great opportunity for the Hilton Head Island community to come together and support a common cause," says Jay Wiendl, general manager of Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island. "So many individuals have been touched by cancer at some point in their lives and we wanted to lend our support to funding much-needed cancer research."
