Join Our Team!

The American Cancer Society, Relay for Life of Gresham is coming to town! And it’s not your ordinary, get a team together, stay up all night doing continuous laps. They’re going for something totally different! Saturday, June 25th at the Main City Park, 219 S Main, Downtown Gresham 12 noon to 11pm come on down and join the “CARNIVAL” fun! Get ready, because it’s going to be a blast!! Lots of celebrating, guest speakers, silent auction, balloon man, clown, Gresham Fire Department on site, live entertainment, fundraising at each team booth, and how about this? A Zumba class at 2pm! That’s right, celebrate, donate and shake your bootie!! They sure put a totally different spin on, what we’ve come to understand as a “Relay for Life” fundraiser. Of course, there is a walking path, which is about 1/8 of a mile, so eight times around equals your 1 mile, and if you have a team and you are still of the mind to do the laps, that counts too!

So, get a team together, decide on a theme, game, or be creative as to what your team is all about. Set up a booth and join in the fundraising fun!!
