Relay for Life Aug. 1

This year’s Benicia Vallejo Relay for Life is going virtual! St. Paul’s Holy Strollers will be joining our community online to fight cancer. Please mark your calendars for an online event Saturday, August 1 — more details coming closer to the event. This will be St. Paul’s 20th year celebrating, remembering, and fighting back against cancer.

How can you get involved? Donate online and/or sign up for the team and fundraise online, or if you would like to donate via check, make payable to American Cancer Society and send to me. 

Create luminarias at home. Photographs will be organized into a virtual luminaria ceremony that will be shown during the online event. If you would like to honor or remember a survivor or loved one lost to cancer, let me know!

Send an email or call me with number of luminaria bags you would like to create. Mark and I will bring you a DIY kit with luminaria bag, felt pens and stickers, and more information. If you need help with photography, we can assist with that as well. Suggested donation is $10, but any amount is fine, and we have sponsorships if you would like to make a luminaria and are unable to donate this year.

For more information and to participate in luminaria making, contact Laura Peabody-Park.
