Bakersfield's Relay For Life Survivor Reception held Thurday night

Relay For Life Survivor Reception on Stockdale Hwy

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.
