The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.

The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community, with four million participants in 6,000 events worldwide in 2015. Last year, 125 people participated in the Relay For Life of Colusa County and raised approximately $28,000.

The Colusa County Relay For Life Event is scheduled for 10 AM on Saturday, August 6, at the Colusa County Fairgrounds.
