"Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back" was the motto for a team from CWR Electronics that participated in Relay for Life 2010 and raised more than $20,000 for the fight against cancer.

This was an especially meaningful event for Team CWR, which lost one of its own when Rick Cohen, the company's warehouse manager, died of pancreatic cancer in August 2009.

Relay for Life took place last weekend in Berkeley Township, N.J. Members of Team CWR stayed awake through the night walking the track and raised a total of $20,811.54 for the American Cancer Society, making them the top fund-raising team at the event.

In addition, team captain and CWR president Brian Swanke was the top individual fund-raiser for the event and was named a Relay for Life All-Star by the American Cancer Society.

"It was great to see such high participation and dedication to this worthwhile cause," Swanke said in a statement. "It is an honor to be recognized as the top team and we will absolutely be back next year."
