Hi everyone,

Here is the link to sign up for our Relay Team: Placer Action Network. The Relay is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society which culminates in a 24 hour walk being held August 18-19 (10:00AM - 10:00AM) at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. The Relay is a WALK (not a run or race) and pace is determined by the walker. Our Team will have teammates on the track for 24 hours (staggered). As we get closer to the event, I'll work with team members to schedule walk-times.

Our Team fundraising goal is $1,000. As of today (drum roll....) we've raised:

  • $265, 
  • ranked 13th out of 41 teams for fundraising, and
  • have done it with only 5 Team members !!!

We are off to a great start! We need at least 15-20 people to be on our Team! Have friends that are survivors? My dad, Rex is a Survivor and proud resistor with the R.A.T.T. Pack - he's on our team! We'd love to have even more Survivors participate with us. Survivors get breakfast at 9:00AM and walk at 10:00 in the Survivor Lap together. The Survivor Lap and a Caregiver lap are part of the walk kick-off and all team members can attend and cheer on our beautiful survivors and caregivers. 

At the next Placer Action Network meeting I'll have a few minutes on the agenda to show slides of past events and provide more information on fundraising, the schedule of activities and services happening at the Relay. 

If anyone has any questions or needs help with registration online feel free to contact me. Here is the link to register, click the button JOIN OUR TEAM and start fundraising online:

If cancer has touched you or someone you care about and you want to do something about it, we need more activists to join or donate to the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life. The ACS is the world's leader in making progress in the fight against cancer.

Thank you. Looking forward to raising money for cancer research and programs that support patients!
