Allison Van Wig Completes Annual Relay For Life To Raise Funds for American Cancer Society

Last Saturday, June 25th I was proud to participate in the annual American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Fundraising event.
Teamwork relay for life
The relay was a team-oriented event that took place over a 24-hour period. My team mates and I walked and ran relay-style around Bellflower High School’s track to raise money and awareness for cancer research and special programs and outreach.

Opening ceremonies began at 9 a.m. followed by a survivor’s lap at 10 a.m. The event was highlighted at day’s end by a luminaria ceremony at 9 p.m.

I personally walked and hula-hooped around the track with a few rest periods in between from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. I then went home, showered, changed clothes, fed my puppy dogs and returned to continue walking until 3 a.m. I QUIT COUNTING AT MILE 25 … 
The day was a very big success and I am very proud to have been able to contribute to the outcome of raising over $105,000 in this one day event. Relay for life 2
Going the extra mile has always been something I believe in … whether it is participating in an event such as this or serving my clients in my Lakewood and Long Beach real estate practice.
If you would like to know about any other upcoming events … give me a call … I would love to include you.     562-882-1581
