Thank you for supporting Relay for Life

-A +A
The Relay For Life of Loomis committee members, survivors, caregivers, team members and the American Cancer Society wish to express our joy and appreciation for your support during our First Annual Relay For Life of Loomis. The Loomis community came together on May 14 and 15 and honored 51 survivors, rallied 19 teams, and raised $21,000 for the American Cancer Society. We want to thank our sponsors and everyone who made donations. During the opening ceremony, survivors celebrated by walking the first lap around the track followed by a lap with their caregivers. During the luminaria ceremony, we remembered those who have lost their battle to cancer with hundreds of luminaria bags that circled the track. During the closing ceremony, participants took a final lap to symbolize that we will not have crossed the finish line until we defeat cancer and we can celebrate more birthdays! Our fundraising efforts will continue until August 31, 2011. Make a donation at relayforl ife.org/loomisca. We look to our community to assist us in fighting back and reaching our financial goals for this year. We look forward to our 2012 Relay For Life of Loomis, and invite all to join us in making this event a big success! Candice Vaughan, Rocklin
