Relay For Life of Redwood City

May 21 and 22, 2011, 10 am Saturday to 10 am Sunday
at Sequoia High School, Redwood City

Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.  We hope you will consider participating by forming a team, making a donation or just stopping by to visit!  There will be free entertainment and health info thru the day.

For more information on starting a team, volunteering, or how you can get involved please go to our website at http://www.relayforlife.org/redwoodcityca or  contact our staff partner Sarah Jackson @ (650) 207-9905 or Sarah.Jackson@cancer.org

 Relay for Life helps us all to:

CELEBRATE the lives of people who have battled cancer.  The strength of survivors inspires others to continue their fight.

REMEMBER loved ones lost to the disease.  At Relay, people who have walked alongside others battling cancer can grieve and find healing.

FIGHT BACK because you have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.  Join us for 24 hours of celebration and remembrance.

Schedule: 

  • OPENING CEREMONY AND SURVIVOR LAP, Saturday, 10 AM
    All cancer survivors and caregivers are invited to participate in the opening ceremony and survivor lap.  Please arrive by 9:45 AM to receive your special gift.
  • LUMINARIA CEREMONY, Saturday, 8 PM
    At dusk the Luminaria Ceremony will begin – to honor those with cancer and to remember those that have lost their battle to cancer.
  • FIGHT BACK CEREMONY, Sunday, 9:30 AM
    The Relay is nearing an end, but the fight against cancer is not over until there is a CURE.
