On February 4, 2013 Janice Murray, host of the Non-Profit Spotlight Show, sat down with Danika Sanchez and Stacey Kupfer from American Cancer Society: Relay for Life. The Relay for Life is set for May 18, 2013 at Central Park and plans to raise $500,000 in fundraising this year. In California Santa Clarita is third in the amount of fundraising by one city for the foundation.
What is a Relay Event?
- Organized, overnight community fundraising walk
- Teams of people camp out around a track
- Members of each team take turns walking around the track
- Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie
- Family-friendly environment for the entire community
Because it’s a team event, individual participants are not required to be there the entire time. But it’s so much fun, you’ll find it hard to leave!
