Loft Stage Team for Relay for Life

Author By Director

This year LoftPAC is starting a team for the South Washington County Relay for Life event! 

This team is for Bridget Olson, an aluma of our theatre program, and a cancer survivor. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Relay for Life, it’s an event that happens multiple times in various states and cities that raises money for the American Cancer Society. The event we’re participating in will be here at East Ridge High school on June 10th from 6pm to 6am. (Yes, it’s over night although it’s up to you on how long you’re able to stay.) There’s multiple teams participating, fundraising and donating to help find a cure to cancer. On the night of Relay, all of the teams have tents lining the track and have something to sell or do to raise money that night. Once we have assembled a team we can work together to come up with ideas for our teams fundraising! 🙂 When at relay when not at our tent, we will walk the track, attend opening and closing ceremonies, help light the luminary bags, and have a great time for a great cause. 

Here’s how to join our team: 

  • Go to the website  www.relayforlife.org 
  • Click on ‘find an event’
  • Search for Woodbury and then click ‘sign up’ under ‘Relay for Life South Washington County -Woodbury, MN’
  • You will have to create an account if you don’t already have one (this is super easy)
  • Then register under the team “Bridget’s Lofties”

It’s up to you on how much you want to fundraise/donate. As of now our team goal is set at $1,000 which is the suggested starting goal. This is subject to change as we start to develop our team.

I’d like to encourage you and your family members to join our relay team and participate in this event as its for such a wonderful cause that is very close to home for many of us.
