This year we are happy to invite members from all of our Being the Church cohorts to join our team and walk with us in an effort transformation of the world for the sake of others by fighting cancer!
Relay participants are determined to help the American Cancer Society fight all stages of all cancers, in all communities and this event has been an important mission of both BHUMC and Los Altos UMC for many years.
American Cancer Society Relay For Life events bring communities together, where teams take turns walking or running around a track or path. Symbolizing that no one should face cancer alone, we take turns or walk together to show our passion for seeing the end of cancer in our lifetime.
Please join our team and walk with us or make a donation to support our fundraising goal. Everyone who contributes is part of the solution!
