Need a bright new propane tank?

Active Enterprises has some brightly colored propane tanks that are designated for a great cause.

LONG BEACH — As a fundraiser for its Relay for Life team, Active Enterprises has two one-of-a-kind, 120-gallon propane tanks for sale that desperately need homes.

Painted with pink and purple automotive paint and enhanced with eye-catching decals, each tank is available at cost with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society event in Ilwaco this June. 

“As long as they don’t mind a pink or purple tank at their house, it’s for a good reason,” Active Enterprises Chief Operating Officer Clark Jacobson says of the lucky customers who end up purchasing the tanks.

Sporting the official color of Relay for Life, the purple tank has a cancer ribbon and the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life logos.

Featuring the American Cancer Society logo and a cancer ribbon, the pink tank proudly says, “Making strides against breast cancer.”

Jacobson says Relay for Life has special meaning to his family because he and his wife, Devann, are caring for her mom, who is bravely battling lung cancer.

Active Enterprises is one of 13 local teams participating Relay for Life, set for June 24 and June 25 at the Ilwaco school track, to raise funds and awareness, celebrate cancer victories, and fight back against a disease that affects millions of lives every year. 

There is still time for more teams to register for the 18-hour event, which will consist of walking the track to honor cancer survivors and remember those who have been lost. 

An uplifting gathering that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime, this year’s Relay for Life at the Ilwaco track will also feature live bands, fun activities, the Firefighters Chili Cook Off, the much-anticipated and very popular luminaria ceremony, 

To purchase one of the tanks, contact Active Enterprises at 642-2102. For more information about participating in Relay for Life, log onto, or attend the next team meeting at        6 p.m., Wednesday, March 2 at the Chautauqua Lodge, 304 14th Street NW in Long Beach.
