American Cancer Society Kicking Off Annual Relay for Life with “Paint the Town Purple”  


Each year, the America Cancer Society sponsors the Relay for Life fundraiser, an

overnight community gathering that gives everyone an opportunity to fight cancer and help save lives. In Redwood City, teams will camp out at Sequoia High School, and take turns walking or running around the track, raising money from sponsors.


The Redwood City Relay for Life takes place May 18-19, and to kick it off and raise awareness, Relay volunteers will be tying purple ribbons on trees in the Downtown area beginning Friday, March 22nd and they’ll stay up through the weekend (to be taken down on Sunday, March 31st).


So when you see these purple ribbons Downtown, think about visiting the Relay for Life Redwood City website at and joining in this important fundraising effort.

At Relay For Life, you will celebrate survivors, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and learn more about how to fight back against cancer. While you’re raising much-needed funds, you’ll also be raising awareness of the importance of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and patient support. No matter who you are, you can help and there’s a place for you at Relay. Visit the national Relay for Life website for more information, and contact contact Julie Pierce at 650-207-9905 / for details on the local effort.
