Relay for Life Colusa County deemed a success in its first year

[slideshow_deploy id=’72244′]

The first-ever American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Colusa County was considered a huge success after its completion Saturday, August 8, at the Colusa County Fairgrounds.

According to organizers, the event raised $30,000 so far and several fundraising activities continued beyond the event date.

The event kicked off at 5PM, and more than 200 people participated, including 16 teams, along with volunteers, walkers or those who took part in the ceremonies and activities, said Krystal Brownfield, Relay for Life Organizer.

The event raises lifesaving funds for cancer research and patient programs and services.

Approximately 20 cancer survivors, along with their caregivers, kicked off the event with the opening ceremonies survivor and caregiver lap.

Throughout the evening, teams and participants enjoyed non-stop music, activities and contests. As well as several raffles and auctions.

At night fall, hundreds of luminaria bags were lit in honor and in memory of loved ones with cancer.

“When we started 6 hours ago, we said that we were here, together, to fight a disease that never sleeps. It’s a Relay tradition in more than 5,000 communities across the United States and the globe to keep one person from each team on the track at all times. This track was pretty lively tonight. I’d say we accomplished our goal for the first ever Relay For Life of Colusa County!” said Team Captain, Elly Guiterrez during Closing Ceremonies.

There is still time to help. Relay For Life donations can be made through Aug. 31 at relayforlife.org

Cancer information, resources and support are available free of charge, 24 hours per day, to anyone at cancer.org and 800-227-2345
