Olympics Week: Popular Community Bank Participating in Relay for Life

From noon on Friday, Aug. 3 until noon on Saturday, Aug. 4, a team of participants from the Commerce (CA) ranch of Popular Community Bank will be running in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life at Veterans Memorial Park.

The American Cancer Society’s Signature Event, Relay for Life, is a unique 24-hour event to increase cancer awareness while raising much needed funds for the American Cancer Society.  Teams are made up of at least 10-15 people who will walk or run around a track in shifts.  Team participants camp out and enjoy music, entertainment and refreshments as well as build team spirit in the fight against cancer.

This will be the first Relay for Life in Commerce, CA.

On July 31, the branch hosted a fundraising barbeque and silent auction to benefit both the Relay for Life team as well as the Light the Night Walk efforts.
