For those of you that may not be familiar, RELAY for LIFE is a 24 hour event, it is not a RUN however teammates alternate so that one person from each team walks the track for 24 hrs. CANCER NEVER SLEEPS SO NEITHER DO WE! (not much anyway)
THE COMMUNITY OF IMPERIAL BEACH and the CITY has embraced RELAY since its inception in 2007. The first event was held at Sports Park. There were few teams but they were mighty - full of vision! Terry Moran of Team Sassie Lassies helped organize that event. SASSIE LASSIES they surely are ! They remain one of our finest core teams!
Last year our RELAY for LIFE 2015 raised $26,000.00 . OUR 2016 self-set goal is 30 teams and $30,000.
