Menlo Park Relay for Life!

Dear City Council and Staff,


The Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraiser to
fight cancer. It happens in 5,000 cities worldwide, and Menlo Park is one of
them!!! This year's Relay will take place August 11-12 at Burgess Park. The
format is a walking relay. Each team tries raise money and put people on the
track to walk in solidarity with cancer patients.


The City actually has a team-Team Menlo! Generally we get good
representation from the Police Department, and the FireFighters Foundation
BBQ our Dinner. I would like to see the Council and Staff on that team as
well! (We have a team from Palo Alto Office of Emergency Services, and it
would be a shame to be outshone by them!)


To sign up, go to

g=team&fr_id=85645> &pg=team&fr_id=85645

and hit JOIN OUR TEAM. If you've never relayed before, you will start by
creating an account (upper left on a desktop, at the bottom on mobile site).
Follow the prompts and then choose to "join an existing team," Team Menlo.
(NB: there are other teams with similar names! Menlo Church, Menlo College,




. you'll get your own personal fundraising page.

. I'll send you some fundraising tips.

. If you raise $100 by the 4th of July, you'll get a t-shirt. If you
raise more, there are cooler prizes.

. If you are in town on August 11, you come on out and walk! We start
at 11am and we go all night. It is a RELAY, though, so you only need to walk
for as long as you like. We have bands playing, and so it is kind of an all
day picnic. We light Luminaria at 8 or 9 pm, so that is another lovely time
to be present. If you are out of town, you can STILL join the team and
fundraise to support our fight against cancer.


Please feel free to ask me if you have questions.

Hope to see your names appearing on the roster!
