Relay For Life of La Mirada-Whittier

LCMS Caring for a Cure

How We Relay

Welcome to the LCMS Caring for a Cure team page! This will be our 5th year participating in Relay for Life. We had a very successful 4th year, raising over $3,000! Our team is run by student groups and organizations at Los Coyotes Middle School in La Mirada, with help from our amazing teachers and staff. We are looking forward to including more students in the Relay. Our goal is to double our fundraising goal from last year, if not more than that!

 

Cancer has touched many of us in some way, which is why our students and our staff are so passionate about participating, raising funds and raising awareness about cancer. At our Relay event, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in their life saving mission. Join us as we promote our tie dye theme throughout the day. The students chose "tie dye" because they recognize that there are many different cancers that are represented by many different colors. They want others to realize that cancer can affect any part of the body, and that there is not one cancer that is more important than the others.

 

We are working on getting our students involved in the fundraising process at school by creating classroom challenges and fun events with teachers. We currently have “cancer sucks” sucker pull booths at various school events. Look for our students after school in our parking lots asking for donations, as well!

 

Please join our team or make a donation. If you would like to honor a loved one that is a survivor, is currently battling or has battled cancer, dedicating a luminaria is a wonderful option for only $10. During the event, there is a luminaria ceremony at night, where all participants take the time to honor those battling with heartfelt speeches. The luminarias are lit and line the path as everyone takes a luminaria lap together. It is truly an emotional event that you need to experience.

 

Thank you so much for supporting our students and our team in our effort to #attackcancer!

Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

august 2018

Funding potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

1.34 million in 2017

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
