If you had the ability to create a world with more birthdays, would you do it? This year, Lodi will be holding its 11th annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life to support the fight for a cancer-free world. Our event will be held June 7 and 8 at the Lodi Grape Festival Grounds.

Relay For Life will once again bring our community together to honor individuals who have fought bravely against the merciless disease of cancer. Survivors, their families and all those who have been affected by this disease come together to walk, run and camp out to create a united network of support and dedication.

Our relay begins with a Survivor Lap, an inspiring time where survivors are honored by participants in support of their incredible fight. One of the most memorable events during the night is the Luminaria Ceremony, where everyone has the opportunity to light candles and take a moment to honor those who have beaten the disease, those who are still fighting, and those who have courageously fought but have lost their lives to cancer.

Funds raised through Relay For Life support programs and services for patients and their families in Lodi and the San Joaquin Valley area. The American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program provides cancer patients with beauty techniques to help them cope and feel good about themselves during radiation and chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments.

For more information on our Relay For Life event, how you can become involved or to find a relay event near you, call 800-227-2345 or visit www.relayforlife.org and search for “Lodi, CA.” Let’s come together to add another birthday candle to every birthday cake this year.
