26too basic LogoTeam Rog's Dave Martin has been a distance runner for quite some time.  A few years ago, he ran to the UNI Dome to raise funds and awareness, and has also run 50 marathons and multiple 50+ mile runs.  On April 16th, Dave will be running a marathon, 26.2 miles, hence the name 26too: while he is running that distance others can be a part of the fight too.  Whether they help by donating to his team, running a lap at the even alongside him, dedicating one of Dave's laps to someone you know, or just coming out to support Dave's run and the fight against cancer in honor of his friend Roger, every little bit helps.  The run will start at 12pm, and there is a schedule of events running throughout the run to keep Relayers of all ages involved all day.  Check out the 26too website for more info

Bark for Life LogoCelebrate! Remember! and Fight Back! with Linn County's FIRST Canine Cancer event!  American Cancer Society's Bark for Life is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer.  On April 18th, we will be honoring our furry four-legged friends with an event filled with walking the track, demonstrations and other giveaways for the dogs that have either battled cancer themselves or served as such a vital part of their human friend's cancer fight as a caregiver. Check out the website, Facebook page or Facebook event for more info! 


The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won't stop until we finish the fight against cancer! Please join us!
