The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Redding is just around the corner. You can register your team today by calling the American Cancer Society at 530-524-1323. This “celebration of life” brings the Shasta community together in a unified effort to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

Former and current cancer patients and caretakers, those who have lost a loved one to cancer, families, businesses, civic organizations and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. Relay For Life takes place from 9am on Saturday, June 11th until 9am on Sunday June 12th at Shasta Collage.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to help eliminate cancer. Participants camp out at the Relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment. The event helps communities celebrate those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals, and schools collect donations  and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts. Our next Team Captain’s Meeting is Monday, February 28th at 5:30pm and is held at The First Christian Church, at Placer and Buenaventura in Redding. Information about how to form a team or become involved in Relay For Life is available from the American Cancer Society at 530-524-1323 or online at
