Welcome to the 2010 SCV Relay For Life Community Website!

We made it!
Relay 2010 was over on August 31st and with a great last-minute effort by our teams, we made it to $500,000!  For the third year in a row we were able to raise over half a million dollars and continue to be in the top 1% of California Relays!

Thank you to everyone who sent out e-mails, notes, Facebook updates, tweets, and made phone calls to help us reach this amazing goal. Santa Clarita Valley rocks!! Check out the Team Totals and the 2010 Team Rankings.

Also, congratulations to Caring for You, our only
Diamond Fundraising Club Level team!  Pat and her crew worked hard to raise over $25,000 this year. An amazing accomplishment!

Congratulations Santa Clarita Valley!
Chilly temperatures and a little wind didn't keep our community away from the 12th Annual Relay For Life of the Santa Clarita Valley which took place on May 22-23, 2010, at Central Park.  It was another GREAT event, thanks to everyone who participated and to all our Survivors and sponsors! Check our photo page for hundreds of Relay 2010 photos and a 20-minute summary!  (Click photo to enlarge.)

Mark Your Calendars!
The 2011 Relay For Life of the Santa Clarita Valley will be held on May 21-22, 2011. Remember the date!

About Relay:
Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society.  The Santa Clarita Valley is proud to be home of the 3rd largest Relay in California, raising over $560,000 last year!  For a detailed description of our event, check out Relay 101.  If you have questions, see our Contacts Page or e-mail us at info@SCVRelay.org.

Luminaria Ceremony DVD:
The Luminaria Ceremony is our time to come together as a community, and Remember those we've lost to cancer, and Honor those who are still fighting. It's a time of reflection and tears and inspiration. The view of 5000 neighbors, all standing side by side, holding candles and sending out thoughts of Hope is breathtaking. This year, our ceremony was filmed from multiple angles, and we have the unique opportunity to offer this DVD to you for a donation of just $10. All proceeds goes back to the American Cancer Society to continue this fight.  Purchase your DVD by making a $10 donation to the "Luminaria Ceremony" team.  For questions, email luminariaceremony@scvrelay.org.

Here's a New Idea: Try a Fundraising NON-EVENT!  
This is a great idea from Captains Council Member Tamara Dowling. Instead of planning an event, plan a non-event! Promise everyone it will be your LAST fundraiser for the year and they can donate, say $20, to STAY HOME! No packing up the kids, no driving in traffic, no mingling required! Hopefully they will see the humor and support your fundraiser. Check out the sample flier and download the Word document to get started. Feel free to ask Tamara questions (Tamara@SCVRelay.org). Thanks Tamara for this great new idea!
