Great Article, thanks for the support, I'm glad to be part of the committee for this great cause, my wife is a two time breast cancer survivor, and participating in this event is a way to give back. Mayor Marchand of Livermore, Mayor Haubert of Dublin and Vice-Mayor Naurum of Pleasanton will all be there at the Opening Ceremonies to support the event. Mayor Thorne is out of town this year, but last year announced that his wife was battling cancer when he spoke at the Opening Ceremonies and sadly Sandi passed away from this dreaded disease not long after. If you are a survivor, come and walk the survivors lap Saturday morning, right after the Opening at 9am. Come and walk, you'll be glad you did.

I’d like to invite all cancer survivors to join us for the Survivor Lap on June 22 at 9am. This is an opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors’ strength and courage.

We will also be hosting a Survivor Ice Cream social at 1:30. Come have some free ice cream and meet some fellow survivors.

The whole day is a lot of fun. Come and join us! We look forward to seeing you there!

Support local families in need

Your contribution to the Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund will go directly to nonprofits supporting local families and children in need. Last year, Pleasanton Weekly readers contributed over $83,000 to support eight safety-net nonprofits right here in the Tri-Valley.
