Relay for Life fundraiser at Fairfield Community Theatre
Relay for Life's "Team Rainbow" is a team of sixth-grade girls at Roger Ludlowe Middle School who will take turns walking and running around the track at Fairfield Ludlowe High School with their mothers on June 4 to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
The Relay for Life, an overnight event that can last up to 24 hours, began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Wash., ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the society. The relay has grown to more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with other towns in 19 other countries participating in the annual event.
