On the first weekend in June the LFIA will participate in the American Cancer Society‘s 2009 Relay For Life. The Relay is the American Cancer Society’s signature annual event and an important source of funds for this organization’s important work. The Relay offers everyone an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. The Relay operates by individuals or community groups forming teams that raise money and take turns walking or running around a designated track or path. The Relay is 24 hours in length; representing the reality that cancer never sleeps. By participating, we honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives we’ve lost to the disease and raise money to help fight cancer in our local communities.
This year, teams in the communities surrounding Griffith Park will walk/run around the famous Mulholland Fountain. The Relay will begin on Saturday, June 6 at 8:00 AM and continue through Sunday, June 7 at 8:00 AM. The day will be filled with activities and special programs.
You can support any of the local teams participating in the Relay (including Team LFIA), and the important work of the American Cancer Society, by making a contribution via the Relay’s website. Click on the team of your choice and follow the directions to donate.
