Executives, staff and team mascot Wild Wing from Honda Center and the Anaheim Ducks will participate in The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life taking place on Saturday, August 8 at Servite High School in Anaheim.
“By being a part of Relay for Life not only are we supporting those who have battled cancer and working towards finding a cure, but also participating in a great teambuilding activity,” said Wendy Yamagishi, Honda Center and Anaheim Ducks Director of Community Relations.
The Honda Center-Ducks team must have at least one representative on the track for a 24 hour period; fans are encouraged to come partake in the walking. There are also opportunities to join the team in raising funds, as well as the option to make monetary donations. Those interested in participating may contact the Ducks at 877-WILD WING for information.
"Relay For Life of Anaheim is proud to have partnerships like these with Honda Center and The Anaheim Ducks to help raise awareness of cancer prevention and support the Society's programs and services offered to cancer patients and their families. To learn more about Relay For Life, we encourage everyone to visit one in their community," said Norissa Ennis, Relay For Life of Anaheim event chair.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s annual signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people, including the Anaheim Ducks/Honda Center team, will be camped out at Servite High School and take turns walking or running around the track. This life-changing event annually brings together more than 3.5 million people to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back to put an end to the disease.
