2011 Relay for Life of Almaden: Community Walk Against Cancer

logo: Relay for Life of Almaden ValleyHelp the American Cancer Society save lives by joining Relay for Life of Almaden Valley.

Relay for Life brings together people to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Teams of people camp out at Leland High School and take turns walking or running around the track. Relays are 24 hours in length; representing the reality that cancer never sleeps.

By participating, you honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives we’ve lost to the disease, and raise money to help fight cancer in Almaden Valley.

Relay for Life is more than just a fundraiser. Every person who participates joins others around the globe as part of this worldwide movement to end cancer.

Anyone can form their own team and participate in Relay for Life of Almaden. Friends, families, neighbors, colleagues, classmates, sports teams, etc. No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay.

At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, and support from others who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease. You have a chance to meet people in Almaden Valley who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer in our lifetime.

You can thank all of the people who have done so much to support you through your personal cancer experience. And you can gather together with others to laugh, cry, and create lasting memories.

Each person who shares the Relay experience can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten the lives of our loved ones or claim another year of anyone’s life.

Relay for Life of Almaden is at Leland High School in Almaden Valley. The event begins Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 10am and ends Sunday, June 26, 2011 at 10am.
