The Fifth Annual Relay For Life Long Beach is calling on the CSULB community to come out on Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, to help increase awareness and raise money for cancer research, education and programs. Last year, more than 50 teams, comprised of people who work or study on the CSULB campus and live in surrounding communities, raised thousands of dollars walking or running around the Jack Rose Track for 24 hours (that’s 24 consecutive hours beginning 9 a.m. Saturday).
Every year, millions of people around the world come together for Relay For Life, an inspirational overnight event designed to honor cancer survivors and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer and empower individuals to fight back against this disease.
Relay For Life Long Beach is a 24-hour event with something for everyone – survivor celebrations, a luminaria ceremony, live music, movies, games, food, friendship and lots of walking. All the festivities, including opening and closing ceremonies, are guaranteed to excite and inspire and show what the relay is really all about.
Relay team registration is currently in progress. Team registration is $150. To learn more about Relay For Life Long Beach and how you can get involved, call Jennifer Leonard at 562/437-0791, option 3, ext. 226 or register online.
