The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Antioch/Pittsburg is just around the corner. Register your team by calling the American Cancer Society at This “celebration of life” brings the Antioch/Pittsburg community together in a united effort to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember the loved ones lost and fight against the disease.

Former and current cancer patients and caretakers, those who have lost a loved one to cancer, families, businesses, civic organizations and the public are invited to take part in this exciting event. Relay For Life takes place from 10:00 am on Saturday, June 23rd to 10:00 am on Sunday, June 24th, 2012 at Los Medanos College in Pittsburg, California.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a family-orientated event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to help eliminate cancer. Participants camp out at the Relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment. The event helps communities celebrate those who have faced cancer, remember the loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals, and schools collect donations and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts.

“Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront,” said Judy Dawson, Event Chair. “Many participants are our family, friends, and neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their environment is proof of the progress that has been not only reducing death rates, but also in the quality of life following cancer treatment.

“The funds raised enable us to continue our investment in the fight back against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services,” said Judy Dawson. “Thanks to the generosity of corporate sponsors like Starbucks and Wal-Mart, the money raised by participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”
