Pettit Kohn Relays Again in Downtown San Diego
For the second year Pettit Kohn Attorney & Team Captain Jenna Leyton led her team in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign. The event took place in downtown San Diego on Saturday, August 21-22, 2010 where Jenna and her Pettit Kohn team members walked around Embarcadero North for 24 hours.
Funds raised support The American Cancer Society which offers many free programs for patients and survivors, including rides to and from treatment; the Cancer Survivors Network for support; beauty products for patients to help them restore their self-confidence after debilitating treatment; and much more.
This year’s Relay weekend was an enormous success, raising approximately $150,000 (compared to last year’s $70,000) to aid in the fight against cancer. The monetary support provided is invested wisely. 75% of funds raised in CA will be spent on national and California based research, prevention, early detection, treatment, and patient support services. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and support of all of Relay’s participants and donors. A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in and/or donated to Relay for Life!
