The 23rd Bakersfield Relay For Life Survivor Reception is Thursday, April 10th, held for local cancer survivors and their caregivers.
"Once a year, we go out there, and we just try to find a cure for cancer,"said Brent Michaels, Relay For Life Steering Committee.
Teams from around the community unite, and relay around the track for 24 hours-with one goal in mind-raising money, to find a cure.
"Getting the community together to raise awareness about what the American Cancer Society does here in Bakersfield," said Michaels. "We're going to get you a purple shirt, we invite you to bring a caregiver with you, we're going to unveil the caregiver luminaria."
If you are a cancer survivor, you're encouraged to attend the Relay For Life Survivor Reception, Thursday April 10th, from 4-6pm, at St. Philip the Apostle Church on 7100 Stockdale Highway.
This year's Relay For Life marathon kicks off at 9am on Saturday, May 3rd.
