Her business may have closed, but Ann Arneson, owner of the former Curves of Davis, wants former members to gather once again and walk in the Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.
“The ACS Relay For Life of Davis is still such an important event for me, as well as for our ‘Curvettes’ who have supported this community event over the previous six years,” Arneson said in a news release. “Our wonderful ladies have been so very generous in the past, raising thousands of dollars for the work the ACS does!”
The Relay For Life runs from 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, to 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 4, at the track at Emerson Junior High School, 2121 Calaveras Ave. in West Davis.
Former Curves members will walk in the relay, placing luminarias around the track in honor and in memory of loved ones who have battled cancer. Members of Davis Swim & Fitness, owned by Tammy Hengel, will join the team in its efforts.
“Nearly everyone can relate to being touched by cancer in some way, and this is a great opportunity for us to come together as a community and do something about it,” Arneson said.
