BANK NIGHT - May 31st starting at 6:30 pm at the NEW valley bibrary. Pick up t-shirst, turn in money,  select camping space, drop off silent auction items, pick up signs, posters, fliers for posting and sharing with the community.

SURVIVORS= Anyone that has heard the words "you have cancer." No matter if it was yesterday or several years ago; regardless of length or type of treatment. SURVIVORS are proof that cancer can be beaten and are Relay's guests of honor. We want all local survivors and caregivers to be part of our Relay celebration where they will be honored with commenmorative momentos, special laps, a dedicated reception area, dinner (prepared by Randy's Rib Shack) waffle breakfast, and other activities. All survivors and caregivers are encouraged to participate. You don't even need to be part of a team, and it's FREE! To help with planning on our end, it is appreciated if you register before the event.

Dinner will be served after the opening ceremony and survivor and caregiver laps. Survivor t-shirts will be available at Relay before our official start time of 6pm.

                        ACTIVITY AND EVENT SCHEDULE TO BE POSTED SOON!

 

As soon as we hit 100 participants, all registered will be eligible for $100 toward your fundraising goal!

Although we're still not quite at 100 registered participants, we went ahead and drew a lucky winner at our last meeting! Eugene Huang is the recipient of $100 toward his fundraising goal! Register now for your chance to win $100!
