Los Altos Relay For Life Takes Another Lap to Fight Cancer
Relay For Life of Los Altos is slated to return to Egan Junior High School 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.
The event, the American Cancer Society’s signature fund- raiser, is designed to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors and caregivers, remember those who have died from the disease and fight back with actions that encourage people to stay healthy.
This year’s event will feature a “1980s” theme, a tribute to the legacy of Dr. Gordy Klatt, the first supporter to walk and run for 24 hours around a track to fundraise for cancer research. Klatt ultimately raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. Since those first steps, Relay For Life has grown into a worldwide movement, raising nearly $5 billion to fight cancer.
Egan Junior High is located at 100 W. Portola Ave., Los Altos.
