“Our student leaders are working jointly with the City of Rosemead on the Relay,” said Miguel Flores, Bosco Tech Coordinator of Youth Ministry. “Since both groups have experience putting on successful Relays in the past, we’re working together on one larger event that we’re confident will have even farther reaching results. We’re so proud of the maturity and dedication of our young people who are committed to the American Cancer Society’s work.”
The event, the American Cancer Society’s national signature activity, raises funds for cancer research while recognizing those who have fought the disease. More than $4 billion has been raised since the event began in 1985.
In addition to the overnight relay, there will be live music, youth activities and a celebratory breakfast for cancer survivors. The schedule of events is:
- Saturday 8:15 a.m. Survivor breakfast
9:00 a.m. Survivor lap
4:00 p.m. Fight Back ceremony
9:00 p.m. Luminaria ceremony
11:30 p.m. Midnight Mass
- Sunday 8:30 a.m. Closing ceremony
