Seventh Annual Relay For Life of Long Beach on Campus June 5-6

Published: June 1, 2009

The Seventh Annual Relay For Life of Long Beach is calling on the CSULB community to come out on June 5 and 6 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, June 5, at 6 p.m. and continues through Saturday, June 6, 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

Relay For Life of 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 the moving opening and closing ceremonies, are guaranteed to excite and inspire and show you what Relay is really all about – HOPE.

Relay team registration is currently in progress. To learn more about event and how you can get involved, call the American Cancer Society’s Jennifer Leonard at 562/437-0791 or register online at the Relay for Life Web site.
