Cancer Advocates Holding Golf Tournament and 5K Fun Run September 2nd

And they’re off! Participants leave the clubhouse at the start of last year’s 5K fundraiser.


The Northern California Cancer Advocates group will be hosting a golf tournament and 5K run/walk on Saturday, September 2nd, with proceeds from the fundraiser benefitting cancer victims, caregivers, family members and cancer fighters in Lassen and Plumas Counties.

The NCCA is a nonprofit organization operating out of both counties with the intent to provide support and guidance for people suffering from cancer during their time of need. The group has hosted this event for the last 4 years, bringing in more than $10,000 in contributions.

5K Fun Run and Walk for Cancer

Check-in for run/walk participants starts at 7:00a.m. The 5K begins and ends at Diamond Mountain Golf Club with a course that is partially dirt trails and paved roads. It’s great for beginners, families, pets and seasoned runners alike.

The run will be professionally chip timed by The Bizz Running Co. a local race timing and event management company.

Your $40 registration fee includes a t-shirt and swag bag.

If you have any questions, please e-mail [email protected].

Swing for a Cure Golf Tournament

Right after the 5K run/walk the excitement moves to the golf course and the 5th Annual Swing for Cancer golf tournament.

Foursomes will play a scramble format with awards for team score and individual feats. Tee off with a shotgun start at 11:00a.m.

Tournament entry is $100 per person or $400 for a complete foursome including greens fees, cart, lunch at the turnaround and tee prizes.

Golf and lunch will be at the golf course, 470-895 Circle Dr. where team prizes will be awarded, prizes raffled and an auction held with great donated items.
