Relay for Life of Crescent City 2020 has been changed to a virtual event due to COVID 19. The majority of our survivors are immune compromised individuals. Public Health mandates no mass gatherings be held through summer. The Relay for Life of Crescent City committee has decided that in lieu of the event being held at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on July 17th from 6 PM to July 18th at 6 PM the Relay for Life of Crescent City will be held as a virtual event. Survivor packets will also be delivered or available for pickup.

Relay for Life Chairperson Chelsea Sanyaolu, Co-Chair Devon Matheny and the entire Event Committee want the survivors to know that we are still here and we can't wait to celebrate you.
