Teams signed up, raising funding toward the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Relay for Life and cancer research. And, while local results were tremendous, the fight goes on. Once again rallying teams and participants, members of Soroptimist International (SI) of Quincy, the lead sponsor in the Plumas County relay, are inviting all interested people to the Relay for Life rally. Set for Tuesday, March 6, from 5 - 6:30 p.m., at the Quin- cy ElementarY School on Alder Street in Quincy, this year's organizers will be discussing the upcoming event. Cynthia Williams and Mar- na Markham, members of SI, are this year's organizers. Rally Teams are needed for the ACS's Relay for Life, Williams explained. "The American Cancer Soci- ety's Relay for Life offers com- munity members an opportu- nity to participate in the fight against cancer," Williams said. "Relay for Life is a 24-hour team event, in which one mem- ber of each team is on the track at all times." Relay The Relay for Life is a 24- hour relay where team mem- bers take turns walking or running around a track to raise money for the fight against cancer. This year's relay is set for ,June 17-18 at Feather River College. "Relay for Life is a unique celebration and fund-raising event that allows participation from all walks of life, includ- ing patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic orga- nizations, churches, and com- munity volunteers to join to- gether to fight cancer," Williams said. "The relay re- minds us that progress has been made in the fight against cancer, and that everyone who participates is making a differ- ence, Teams Teams of 12 to 24 people are ticket information, contact Chamber of Commerce 283-0188 NEED WEDDING INVITATIONS?

Teams are organized by friends, relatives, local busi- nesses, hospitals, schools, churches, and other organiza- tions. Each team competes against each other to raise the most money or have {he best show of spirit, Williams explained. Teams are invited to select a theme, a name and costumes as they participate in the par- ty-like atmosphere as many chose to camp out right on the field, enjoying entertainment, food and games. Team registration is $150. Each team member raises and collects a minimum of $100 pri- or to the event. Coromonios The Relay for Life opens with a cancer survivors' walk, in which those who have real- ized the benefits of the ad- vancements of cancer research are invited to take the first lap. "This emotional time sets the stage for the importance of each participant's contribu- tion," Williams said. The luminary ceremony is another highlight of the event. Helpers fill paper' bags bear- ing the names of cancer sur- vivors or those who have lost the battle against cancer, and then a small candle is added. The bags are then spread out around the track Saturday evening after dark, following a luminary ceremony. The can- dles are lit and allowed to burn throughout the night. Why is it important to raise funding for cancer research? The fight hasn't ended. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast, cancer. "Everyone is personally af- fected by cancer, sooner or lat- er," Williams said. But, the good news is that to- day, slightly more than half of cancer patients survive. This survival rate can be increased through more research and greater community awareness of health issues. "Relay for Life gives every- one an opportunity to fight back--to make a difference in the battle against cancer," Williams said. For more information, con- tact Williams at 283-4822 or 283- 6067.
