Jun 27, 2019


On July 20th & 21st, 2019;  Survivors, Caregivers, Friends & Family~ ALL will join together to "THINK BIG" for the American Cancer Society's 3rd Annual Relay For Life of Northern Sonoma County. This year's event will take place at Analy High School. Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. It is a team event where team members take turns walking around the track for 24 hours. Because Cancer NEVER sleeps, neither do our participants.

We begin the morning celebrating Survivors with an honorary breakfast at 9 a.m. Opening Ceremony begins at 10 a.m. with the Survivors lap and walking continues through Sunday at 10 a.m. There will be too many items to list at the silent auction, food, entertainment, and FUN for all ages!

"Being a part of Relay For Life since I was three years old means meeting fellow survivors, sharing stories of courage and spreading the feeling of hope. Through Relay For Life, I’ve realized I’m not alone in the fight towards ending cancer. At this years Relay For Life, I will be walking my eighteenth survivor lap with fellow survivors I’ve made life long connections with through this event."~ Elena Ramos, Survivor

I believe our efforts are making a difference for a world without cancer and I am proud to be a part of something so meaningful."~ Ruth Fitzsimmons, Volunteer
