More than 100 people turned out in picture-perfect June weather for the Relay for Life in Charles Park in Howard Beach this past weekend.

The annual event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, remembers those who were lost to cancer, honors survivors and helps raise money for a cure.

This year’s event — he last for longtime organizer Phyllis Insirillo, who has been spearheading the relay for six years — was dedicated to Kevin Sturdy, who coached at Ave Maria Catholic Academy, and Howard Beach resident Gina Aarons, who both recently passed away from cancer.
