Relay for Life is a fun way to join others in the Juneau community in the fight against cancer and to raise funds for cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services provided by the American Cancer Society. It is also a way to celebrate the lives being saved from cancer and to remember those lost.
Teams form and raise money prior to the event, then come prepared to camp out if they chose and enjoy the activities and celebration of life. For more information on making a donation, forming a team or participating as a survivor, call Johna Rossetti at 500-7383.
There will be themed laps and lots of entertainment to include dancers, music provided by a disc jockey, and live music provided by various local musicians. All events will be held at Dimond Park.
A Silent Auction will be held on Saturday only beginning at noon and ending at 9 p.m. The highest bidder of the items will be considered the winner and will be notified the following day upon which arrangements will be made for payment and pick-up of items. Bidder's presence is not needed.

Roberts Tram, CMI, Temsco Helicopter Tours, Alaska Fudge Company, Douglas Café, Shoe-fly, Coastal Helicopters, JRC The Alaska Club, Chez Sante Massage, Alaska Zipline, Alaska Brewery, Annie Kaills, Western Auto-Marine, Allen Marine, Baranof Hotel, Foggy Mountain Shop, Tracy's King Crab Shack, and Rent-a-Wreck.
