Relay For Life seeks participants

The American Cancer Society is looking for participants for its Relay For Life fundraiser in April and May.

Ten relays will take place in southern Nevada during the next two months and ACS will hold a number of "Paint the Town Purple" recruiting events from April 4-7. During these events, relay committee members and team captains will be visiting area businesses encouraging community members to participate. In addition to Relay’s purple posters, volunteers will distribute purple lollipops, because "CANCER SUCKS."

Those events include: 

  • Cheeburger Cheeburger Fundraiser – Monday, April 4, 5-9 p.m., 8390 S. Rainbow Blvd.

 

  • CiCi’s Pizza Las Vegas Fundraiser – Wednesday, April 6, six locations, all day/night – 10-20 percent of sales go to ACS.

 

  • Beer Tasting Benefit - Thursday, April 7 at Freakin Frog, 7-10 p.m., 4700 S. Maryland Pkwy. Enjoy five beers for $25 and 100 percent of sales fight cancer.

 

  • Paint Your Car Purple! – Pick up supplies at ACS Office (While supplies last), 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., 6165 S. Rainbow Blvd. 

Businesses and residents also can show their support in the fight against cancer by ordering a purple bow to place on their property. The bows are available for a suggested donation of $10 and all proceeds will benefit the work of the Society.

During the relays, teams of 10-15 people take turns walking around a track for 12 or more hours in support of the fight against cancer. Participants set up campsites along the track while enjoying entertainment, food and prizes. An estimated four million people will participate in one of the more than 5,000 Relay For Life events this year.
