Relay for Life team says thanks

By From page A6 | August 20, 2014

Thank you to everyone for all the support with the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Relay for Life earlier this month. The event raised more than $25,000 for the American Cancer Society. Thank you especially for the support to our team, Walk Around the Clock. With your support, team Walk Around the Clock raised more than $7,300!

There are so many to thank: the community of Davis, friends, family and fellow Davis High School and Davis junior high school students who supported us over the past several months by donating to the ACS, attending the fundraisers, organizing your own fundraisers, walking (and walking!!) with us, inspiring us with your stories and helping us with the event in so many different ways.

We send a special thank you to Lamppost Pizza, The Habit Burger, Cultivé and Round Table Pizza for their generosity by hosting fundraisers. Thanks to Common Grounds for providing the delicious coffee and hot chocolate, and to the California Yard Sharks Softball Club for washing cars. We are also so appreciative to The Davis Enterprise for covering our journey and helping to develop awareness.

Thank you to Gabriela Cortez (volunteer team development chair), Gina Von Damm Bogart (volunteer event chair), and Chelsea Fahr (ACS Relay for Life event manager) for their leadership. Thank you to all of our fellow Relay teams for being inspiring partners.

We are so grateful to everyone who participated and the amazing community spirit, encouragement and generosity this community has shown to support us in our efforts for the American Cancer Society and each person who has been impacted by cancer.

Co-captains, team Walk Around the Clock, Relay for Life, Davis
