SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Relay for Life Dana Point participants brought in more than $21,000 from their event last weekend, officials said.
Danielle Ruiz, community manager for Relay for Life, said the weekend-long event brought in a total of $21,654.36.
Relay for Life is a 24-hour event where teams camp out overnight and can take turns walking or running laps. Proceeds collected during the event benefits the American Cancer Society.
For the past several years, Lantern Bay Park has played host to the event where laps are dedicated to survivors and caregivers. Participants join in on an open and closing ceremony, a luminaria ceremony and a fight back ceremony.
According to the event’s website, more than 70 participants and 14 teams were involved.
