Unity League involved in Relay for Life Napa this weekend

At the inspiration of Rick Turko, the Unity League has a group in Napa's Relay for Life (an American Cancer Society fundraiser) this year, happening this weekend. There are still a myriad of ways for any of us to get involved and support the cause:
Cancer affects EVERYONE!

It doesn't matter whether you're gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or straight.

And this weekend (July 25-26, 2009) the Napa Valley Unity League is going to help do something about it! “Team Unity League” takes to the track at Napa Valley College for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Help support our efforts:
  • Walk with us. Just commit to walking around the track at Napa Valley College for one hour (or more) between 10 am on Saturday, July 25 and 9 am on Sunday, July 26. It’ll be FUN! Send an e-mail to with the hour(s) you are available to participate.
  • Take the next step – help raise money. Sign up here to join Team Unity League. If you raise $100 in donations you’ll receive a Napa Valley Relay for Life T-Shirt!
  • Make a donation to the American Cancer Society on behalf of Team Unity League or one of our participants. You can do so on-line at Don’t want to use your credit card on-line? Mail us a check payable to the “American Cancer Society” and we’ll make sure it gets credited to Team Unity League’s fundraising tally. Send it before Friday, July 24 to:

  • Know someone battling cancer? Maybe you’ve lost a loved one. Buy a luminaria in their honor or memory. You can do that here. The luminarias will be lit at 9pm on Saturday, July 25. It should be a very powerful time during the event.

  • Join in when all of us take the final lap around 9 am on Sunday, July 26. Walk with us or be there to cheer us on.

  1. Thanks to everyone who participated - either by walking or making a donation!

    The entire event raised more than $200,000. Team Unity League raised $6,152.31 - enough to be given a "Diamond Team" designation. Some of our participants are still gathering contributions!
