Many beloved events have been impacted by COVID-19 and among them is Crescent City's Relay for Life, one of more than 2,500 events around the country to support and celebrate survivors and caregivers.
The usual in-person walkathon portion of Crescent City’s Relay for Life was cancelled, but local organizers worked to put on a "virtual" event this year. And the traditional luminaries still lined the fence line at Mike Whalen Field at Del Norte High School on July 18 to show the fundraiser’s spirit still shines.
But, donations are needed. With a goal of $100,000, the local Relay's website shows that less than $800 had been raised by the time of this posting.
Organizer Devon Matheny said the local organization is still fundraising and will shirts through Aug. 31 on their Relay for Life of Crescent City Facebook page.
Donations can still be made at relayforlife.org/crescentcity.
