Relay for Life Raises Over $100,000 for American Cancer Society

Original Cancer Survivors lead off the 2012 Relay for Life

By Michele Littlefield, Event Co-Chair, Antioch Relay For Life

Our event was held at Los Medanos College on June 23rd – 24th from 10am-10am. We had 72 teams this year, 710 registered participants and have raised $113,080.00 so far.

Some of the original Antioch Relay For Life cancer survivors walked as Survivors 13 years ago and carried the banner for us this year to Celebrate!

It is so important to me that our community knows that the American Cancer Society has so many wonderful free services and that there is support in the community as well for everyone, patients, survivors, their families and friends. Our event feels like a giant block party with your favorite friends and family members in attendance. It is very powerful to stop and look around for a minute during the event knowing that we all come out to Relay for our own reasons but are united in the fight to cure cancer.
