Relay For Life

Relay For Life is a national fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, held locally in the Springtime. The Retreat has been sponsoring a team about since our inception. We participate to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer. Our team has been voted the top Hobe Sound Relay For Life team for many years. View our 2017 photo album in the slider above.

The Retreat Remembers

The Retreat Team has raised a Grand Total of over $121,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society. These amazing volunteers receive the donations each year from an ever-changing variety of events. Examples of past events include a Holiday Home Tour, selling Enjoyment Books, cruises, arrangements with a local restaurant, auctions, and sales of Relay material. In 2015 we instituted a Dog Parade Fundraiser.  See some of the photos below.
