‘Relay for Life’ Yucca Valley Coming in April! Event Leaders Seeking Cancer Survivor Participants

Joshua Tree, CA – Relay for Life in Yucca Valley, supporting the American Cancer Society’s services through pledges made to Relay for Life, is April 24 and 25 at Yucca Valley High School’s Trojan Field, from 9 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The event will include a cancer survivors’ breakfast, from 7 to 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 24 at the event. Program coordinators have issued a call for survivors to join in the celebration and activities. ““We are planning a spectacular breakfast. We want survivors to come out to the event to inspire participants; we want to celebrate them,” said Event Chairperson Melynie Schiel. She adds that survivors are not obligated to participate in the Relay and the breakfast is free for survivors. There is a survivors’ sign-up form that will need to be completed before the breakfast. To sign up for the breakfast and obtain a form, contact Cheryl Hoffman at 760/365-1643.

Individuals who would like to participate, but who are not on a team, are invited to logon to to join a team; or call Paul Hoffman at 760/365-1643. The goal of this year’s event is to have 50 teams and raise $140,000. Along with information booths, there will be entertainment, food and refreshments, ceremonies and activities for children. The public is encouraged to attend the event.

Relay for Life is a community gathering where everyone can participate in the fight against cancer. Teams camp out and take turns walking the track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event, because cancer never sleeps. Nationally, the events bring millions of people together to raise money to help prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering.
