Pleasant Hill's Relay for Life Event

May 17, 2015 08:49PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

Nearly 100 Monarch butterflies will be released at this year’s Pleasant Hill Relay For Life to symbolize – “on the wings of hope” – a wish for the end of cancer in our lifetime.

The 2015 Relay will be held the weekend of May 30-31 at the Pleasant Hill Middle School track. It is an awareness and fund raising event for the American Cancer Society.

The 10am kickoff on Saturday will salute cancer survivors and the butterflies will be released later that morning. The Relay continues overnight to signify that cancer never sleeps and neither does the fight against it.

Family-friendly, the Relay is open to all who may wish to walk the track or participate in fun events. A “kids zone” will have activities for children. A solemn Luminaria ceremony will be held after sundown to remember those who are fighting or have lost the fight against cancer. The evening will be illuminated by glow sticks.

Details about the PH Relay can be found on its website, http://relayforlife.org/pleasanthillca, by e-mailing relayforlifeph@yahoo.com, or by calling 925-944-4898.
