Ready, Set, RELAY!

Thirty-two teams and 281 participants raised over $131,000 for the American Cancer Society at the Carlsbad Relay for Life event in late July. The event included live bands, team challenges, appearances from the Carlsbad Fire and Police Departments, midnight tacos for hungry relayers, and a special survivors lap. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all.
