Local residents are invited to form teams to participate in the American Cancer Society’s seventh annual Relay For Life, which takes place Aug. 4-5 at Emerson Junior High School, 2121 Calaveras Ave. in West Davis.

The event runs from 10 a.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday; “we relay for 24 hours because cancer never sleeps,” a news release said.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. California relays brought in $31.7 million for the society in 2011, the news release said. These dollars support cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services provided by ACS to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families.

The relay is a 24-hour community fundraising event. People come together in teams, walk the track and camp out overnight. The event features an opening and closing ceremony, speakers, entertainment and activities to keep participants energized and entertained.

“At (the) Relay (For Life), we celebrate our cancer survivors, remember those we have lost and fight back against this awful disease,” the release said.

Cancer survivors are invited to enjoy a complimentary breakfast on Aug. 4 and walk the first lap of the event. To sign up a team, visit www.relayforlife.org/davisca. Once registered, participants can begin fundraising via their personal web page.

For more information about getting involved with the relay, contact event chairwoman Gaby Valenzuela at [email protected].
