IXLers Walked (and Ran!) to Support Cancer Prevention

August 2, 2017


Life at IXL

For the second consecutive year, IXL participated in our local Relay for Life event in Millbrae, California. On July 22–23, a team of IXLers walked for 24 hours to remember lost loved ones, honor survivors of all types of cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society in its efforts to make a global impact on the treatment and cure for cancer.

Relay for Life is the main fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. IXLers laced up their sneakers to spend 24 hours walking and raising funds because this cause is close to our hearts and has touched many of our lives.

We were fortunate to spend a weekend filled with beautiful weather, great food and entertainment, and inspiring walkers. In fact, IXL Administrative Assistant Janice Fu not only walked, but ran in the heat to support cancer prevention and survivors!

Thanks to the many teams that participated, Millbrae Relay for Life raised over $37,000 to help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, critical patient care services, education and prevention initiatives, and so much more.
