American Cancer Society Relay For Life to be Held in Farnsworth Park

The Relay For Life of Altadena invites all individuals who want to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost, and cancer survivors who are fighting back against the disease to join its Relay For Life, scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2016 in Altadena at Farnsworth Park on the Lower Baseball field. Opening Ceremonies begin at 9:00 a.m.

Relay For Life is a 12 Hour community celebration where individuals and teams take turns walking around a track relay style to raise funds to fight cancer. There is live entertainment throughout the day and into the evening.

At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of Luminaria around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents HOPE that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. Altadena is ready to “Finish the Fight!”

To join Relay For Life of Altadena, visit or drop by Farnsworth Park on June 4.

Farnsworth Park is located at 568 Mount Curve Ave. in Altadena.
