Dublin Relay for Life 2010

by   |  Topics:  Announcements


Dublin Relay for Life will be coming to the Dublin Ranch Community on Saturday, July 10th, and Sunday, July 11th, at Fallon Middle School, located on 601 Kohnen Way, Dublin, CA 94568. A Relay for Life event usually involves teams of people camping out at a local high school, park, or fairground and taking turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are 24 hours in length; representing the reality that cancer never sleeps. By signing up, participants honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives lost to the disease, and raise money to help fight cancer in their local communities.

Relay began in 1985, when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington, ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since then, Relay has grown from a single man’s passion to fight cancer into the world’s largest movement to end the disease.
