Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Extra Space Storage Inc. and the American Cancer Society have launched a partnership that will allow the American Cancer Society free use of storage space to store all equipment and materials in conjunction with their annual “Relay For Life” that will be held starting at 9:00am on Saturday, June 26, 2010 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA. “We appreciate the opportunity to serve local charities in the communities we serve. We are especially honored to partner with the American Cancer Society,” noted Mark Stanke, Divisional Vice President for Extra Space Storage.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay For Life, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. At Relay, every person in the community has a chance to celebrate, remember, and fight back and every person who participates joins others around the globe as part of this worldwide movement to end cancer.
Bridget Del Rio Cortés, Relay Manager for the American Cancer Society states, “The ability to work with Extra Space Storage and get free storage has a powerful impact on our efforts. It allows us to focus more dollars toward patient services and programs.”
