Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley Goes "Green For A Cure"

Join me in the fight against cancer by participating in Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley’s (SFV) 24-hour walkathon, taking place this Saturday, June 5 at 9:00 a.m. to Sunday, June 6 at 9:00 a.m. The event is held annually to celebrate those who have won their battle against cancer, to remember those who lost their lives to it, and to fight back against the disease by helping to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

Participants form teams of 10-25 people and camp out at local high schools, parks, etc. and take turns walking or running around the track or path. “Because cancer never sleeps” at least one team member is asked to be on the track at all times during the event.

Going even one step further, Relay for Life of SFV has pledged to do their part and help our environment by going “Green for a Cure.” To lessen waste at the event, they will be selling re-usable water bottles with refills provided by Kangen Water. Eco-friendly goodies have been provided by different eco-conscious companies, such as Studio Alexandria LA and Your Daily Thread. Volunteers and participants are greatly encouraged to recycle any paper or plastic items, as well .

To join a team, or to register as an individual, sign up online or head over to the registration booth to sign up at the event. For more information visit their official website or check out their blog, Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley.
