Relay for Life Calabasas

On Saturday, May 20, Relay for Life of Calabasas took place at AE Wright Middle School. Featuring fun activities, entertainment, performances, and tons of games, the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society included teams, sponsors, families, businesses, sports groups, schools, and more participating to take action and make a global impact on cancer.

Some of the fun included a performance by Comedy Sportz, a Zumba class, a three-legged race, a hotdog eating contest, and movies.

While staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,300 communities and 20 countries, participants in a Relay for Life event are part of an organization of 2.5 mil-lion survivors, patients, advocates, volunteers, caregivers, and re-searchers doing everything within their power to save lives.

The top teams included B’Cause We Care 2, Band Together For A Cure, and Wellness Oncology & Hematology. Top participants included Omid Shaye, Marcey Verity, and Jessica Cligher.
