Looking Glass Animal Rescue Participating in Relay For Life
Founder's Son Fighting Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Looking Glass Animal Rescue (LGAR) is participating in Katonah-Lewisboro's Relay for Life event for the co-founder Jody Harris-Stern's ten year old son Bennett. He was diagnosed with stage 3 Nodular Lymphocyte-Predominant Hodgkin's Lymphoma in March. 100% of the fundraising goes to childhood cancer research and services.

Daniel Raciti, director of marketing and operations at LGAR, created the Relay for Life team, "Bennett's Rescuers" after meeting Katonah-Lewisboro chapter's Marisa at a card-making workshop for families to send to Bennett, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

The Katonah-Lewisboro Relay for Life event will take place Friday, June 14th from 5 pm to 12 am at John Jay High High School in Cross River, NY.
