If you drive around town at all on May 5, you are going to see a lot of purple on buildings and even on people. What is going on? Well, it’s the annual “Paint Our Town Purple Day!” This purple-fest is a celebration to get the word out about the upcoming American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life to be held June 16th and 17th at Liberty High School in Brentwood.
You’ll see flags flying, business store fronts decorated, personal residences decorated and lots of purple t-shirts. Feel free to join in! For more ideas about how you can join in, go to www.relayforlife.org/brentwoodca. The website lists creative ways you can display the color purple in support of Relay For Life.
While you are on that website, be sure to poke around to learn more about Relay. While raising funds for cancer research is a big part of Relay, it is also an important way for us to support those who are currently fighting cancer, have survived cancer, or to honor those we have lost due to cancer. I’ll bet that everyone reading this has been touched by cancer in some way in your life through a close friend or relative, or even yourself.
If you’d like to donate money to support this event, you can also do so at the website link I’ve given you above. You can even take it up a step and form your own team to be a part of this great day. Or just plan on coming out to Liberty High School in June to see what all the fuss is about! There were be events happening nearly every hour of the day for 24 hours including vendors, bands, family-friendly movies and more! Some families even camp out overnight. Check the website or contact me if you have any questions.
