'Relay For Life' seeks breakfast providers

"Relay For Life" is looking for a few good breakfasts!

That's the word from the committee which is working on last-minute plans for this year's American Cancer Society SCV Relay For Life, scheduled May 30-31 at Central Park.

The Survivors Village subcommittee is looking for juice, coffee and breakfast breads to serve to cancer survivors the morning of Saturday, May 30, as the survivors wait to walk in the opening Survivors Lap. The committee expects to serve some 500 meals to cancer survivors, who are the most poignant reminder of why local residents join each year's Relay For Life.

The following morning, as walkers wake from their overnight participation in the 24-hour walking event, the committee needs to serve some 1,000 breakfasts of pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee. The event has a group which has offered to cook and serve the breakfast, but the Relay Committee has to provide the food.

"We'd love to find a group or a company that is willing to provide the food for the volunteer staff to cook and serve," said Mindy Duffy, who is chairing this year's Relay food operations. "If we don't have to buy food for our walkers, all of the Relay proceeds can go to the fight against cancer."

Vendors or non-profits interested in providing the survivor breakfast can contact Survivor Village Chair Cheryl Adams through the Relay Web site by sending a message to

This year's Relay already has a record 135 teams of walkers signed up to participate. Local residents who would still like to form a team, join an existing team, donate to a registered team member, or volunteer during the event can find more information at the local Relay Web site at

Relay for Life is a 24-hour walking event which benefits the American Cancer Society, the nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. ACS works toward that goal by preventing cancer, saving lives from cancer, and diminishing suffering from cancer by supporting research, education, advocacy and service.
