Relay For Life events merge

Submitted By Julie Moore

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society?s signature fundraiser cancer walk. During the 24-hour events members of the community take turns walking at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Events are staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 20 countries who give of their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer.

The free events are full of entertainment and activities, with the intention not only to raise money and awareness, but also to remember loved ones lost to cancer and celebrate survivors and those who are battling against cancer. Everyone is welcome to these fun community events.

This year several local events have merged to better serve their communities:

Fremont, Union City, and Newark combined into Relay For Life of Tri-City F.U.N. and will be June 23-24 at Newark Community Center Park - 35501 Cedar Blvd., Newark. Opening ceremonies start at about 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 23 and include a special acknowledgement of cancer survivors and their caregivers. http://relayforlife.org/tricityfunca

Castro Valley, Hayward, San Leandro, and San Lorenzo merged to become Relay For Life of the East Bay. It will be held at Alden E. Oliver Sports Park - 2580 Eden Park Place, Hayward on August 4-5. Opening ceremonies are at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 4 and will also include cancer survivors starting off the day?s activities. http://relayforlife.org/eastbayca

All funds raised at the Relay For Life events benefit the American Cancer Society, whose mission is to free the world from cancer by funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention.
