Alamedans Prepare for Cancer Relay for Life


At 10 a.m. this Sunday, May 1, Alamedans will be “painting the town purple” to draw attention to the fight against cancer and the upcoming American Cancer Society Relay for Life, which will take place on June 25 and 26 at Encinal High School.

This weekend, organizers of the Relay for Life will be canvasing Alameda — decorating businesses, schools and homes — with purple balloons, posters and other decorations.

Alamedans are asked to wear purple-colored shirts or Relay for Life apparel and meet at 10 a.m. at City Hall. The group will move from City Hall down to Park Street this Sunday morning.
