The Sixth Annual Relay For Life Long Beach is calling on the CSULB community to come out on May 2-3 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 consecutive hours. This year’s event begins Friday, May 2 at 6 p.m. and continues through Saturday, May 3 until 6 p.m.
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 luminary ceremony, live music, movies, games, food, friendship, and lots of walking. All the festivities, including moving opening and closing ceremonies, are guaranteed to excite and inspire and show you what Relay is really all about — HOPE.
