Held at CSU's new on-campus stadium, attendees enjoyed mingling, auctions, a football toss on the new field, dinner and dancing, and helped to raise more than $230,000 to support BGCLC Summer Programs. BGCLC has four year-round sites and an additional two summer only sites serving more than 3,200 youth annually, with an average daily attendance of nearly 500 Club members during the school year, and more than 750 youth during the summer months.

Survivors, caregivers and supporters, all in their walking shoes, came to celebrate life, remember those who lost to cancer and to fight back against all cancers. Cancer survivors, clad in purple shirts, kicked off festivities taking their traditional survivor victory lap with 18 teams then taking to the track for the 9-hour relay. Nearly 200 lit luminaria bags lined the track, each dedicated to a loved one lost or in honor of someone affected by cancer. The event helped to raise more than $50,000 for the American Cancer Society for research, advocacy, education, patient services and more. Photos courtesy of Tom Kamsickas Photography.
