Shipbuilders Support Relay For Life

Published July 7, 2021

Newport News Shipbuilding’s team raised more than $20,000 for the 2021 Peninsula Relay For Life to help fight cancer.

This year’s event, held June 26, was a drive-thru due to COVID-19. Despite the challenges, the team worked hard and adapted. The drive-thru path was outlined with luminarias decorated with names of loved ones who have been touched by or lost to cancer. Enthusiastic volunteers navigated and greeted participants throughout the event.

The Relay for Life team would like to thank donors, volunteers, participants and its executive sponsor, Gary Fuller, vice president of Fleet Support Programs, for their contributions.

“I am so proud of the NNS Relay For Life Team. This event was extremely successful due to the preparation, dedication and commitment of the entire team. I know this event touched many lives and many hearts. We could not have been successful without the generous donations of the NNS employees,” Fuller said.
