Plumas County is kickin' cancer with Relay for Life What were those purple balloons? Did Quincy get tagged by Portola? Not this time! The decorations on Main Street and in many local businesses begin the countdown to Relay for Life of Plumas County's Kickin' Cancer event. June 21 will mark the 16th year that walkers will go around the clock to raise money for the American Cancer Society to help in the battle against cancer. Relay for Life is a family-oriented team event in which participants walk relay-style around the track at Feather River College and take part in fun activities off the track. Teams can include co-workers, club members, family and friends. Teams spend the months leading up to Relay raising funds throughout the community. In the last 16 years Plumas County Relay for Life has raised over $1 million that has gone toward cancer research and patient programs. Local Relay organizers ask everyone to keep an eye out in the coming weeks for donation opportunities as teams kick their fundraising efforts into high gear. Relay for Life is a unique opportunity for community members to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those they've lost and fight back against the disease. The public is invited and. encouraged to attend the event. Themed laps, family fun activities, live music and demonstrations will run John 8:58 - Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." Calvary Chapel 1953 E. Ma/n St., Qu/ncy throughout the day. Participants and visitors can buy giveaway tickets, get food, play games and enjoy a day that is inspirational to so many, say organizers. All are invited to stay into the evening for the Luminaria Ceremony, which starts at 9 p.m. At that time the track will be lined with glowing bags decorated in honor of people who have lost the battle and in support of those who have won their battle or continue to fight. Luminaria bags can be purchased now or on the day of the event. Many of the participants are cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer); organizers point out that this serves as a reminder that the local community is not immune to this disease and participants .can help their friends, families and neighbors who have been touched by cancer. The Relay committee is devoted to getting more cancer survivors to the event this year. A survivor pre-event is currently being planned in order to pre-register honorary guests prior to the event. The event starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 21. Watch the paper in the coming weeks for letters to the editor from Relay participants regarding "why we Relay."
