Relay For Life – American Cancer Society

Eventbrite - Relay For Life

Scouts & Families:

This is an opportunity to make a difference:

American Cancer Society RELAY FOR LIFE, Torrance – April 25-27, 2014 – South High, Torrance, CA.

This is a fund raising event for the American Cancer Society consisting of a fun filled 24 hours of activities, walking, service and fund raising that the WHOLE FAMILY can attend.  This outing and event is open to all. 

Scout families may camp with the troop, sign up to walk/raise funds or just show up and enjoy the festivities.

Relay for Life Website

We will be camping on the fields of South High, walking the track in one hour shifts for 24 hours and selling items;  all to raise money for cancer research.

I believe the Scouts, our Troop Families and Friends should support this event.  We have several Scouts/Scout Families who have been personally touched by this disease in one way or another.  It is our responsibility to support them in this endeavor.

This is a fun filled event with plenty to do and see:
