FRAMINGHAM – Ever want to try your skills on an American Ninja course? Take on your friends or family in a game of laser tag or extreme dodge ball? Or, do you just want to see how high you can bounce of a trampoline.
If your answer is yes to any of these, then come to Launch Framingham at a “FUN”draising event benefitting this year’s 21st Annual Natick-Ashland-Framingham-Sherborn-Holliston Relay for Life.
Overnight starting on Saturday afternoon May 16th and ending the next morning. Residents from Natick, Framingham, Ashland, Sherborn and Holliston come together as one community celebrating cancer survivors, their caregivers and those lost to cancer while raising money to support the activities in Massachusetts available from the American Cancer Society.
Launch Framingham is an indoor trampoline park located at 2 California Ave in Framingham right off Route 9. The facility offers trampoline courts, extreme basketball, dodgeball, laser tag, a battle pit and “The Challenger” a ninja-like course with 3 levels – easy, hard, and challenging! Little kids will also enjoy the indoor zip line and playgrounds. Fun for everyone with a portion of every admission going to support this year’s Relay for Life.
“This is our community’s opportunity to help save lives from cancer by taking our message to more people and raising more dollars to fund the fight,” said Lewis Glass, Event Co-Chair.
His daughter Allies added that “Teams with young and old members enjoy themselves and, together, our efforts can make a big difference both locally and nationally.”
Interested in learning more or forming a team? Monthly leadership meetings are held in the Natick Community Center on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Team captains and participant meeting is at 7:15 pm.

The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all.
Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.
The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community, with four million participants in 6,000 events worldwide in 2016.
Last year, the funds raised in Massachusetts allowed the American Cancer Society to provide serves to over 6800 patients to provide free lodging and meals for 25,000 nights at Hope Lodge a home away from home to patients and families in need.
