Pleasanton's Relay for Life takes steps forward in fight against cancer

Raises $83,508 to go toward research, patient resources

Pleasanton's annual Relay for Life event last weekend brought out 26 registered teams, 62 cancer survivors and 236 individual participants, equipped with walking shoes and water bottles to fight against cancer.

The 24-hour fundraising walk went from 9 a.m. Saturday (July 19) to 9 a.m. Sunday (July 20) and included live musical and dance performances and booths that offered raffles, facilitated games, and sold food and merchandise.

This year's relay raised $83,508 in net funds to go toward cancer research and patient resources. The organizers' goal was $125,000, and they are still accepting donations through Aug. 31. Donations can be made by going to the event website.
