COUNTDOWN to Imperial Beach RELAY FOR LIFE 2016..  JULY 30 thru JULY 31, Cancer doesn’t sleep so neither will we!  RELAY is a 24 hour Campout/Team Walking Event that raises money to support The American Cancer Society and its endeavors to eradicate cancer and to fund essential programs that help those affected by cancer, ie;   Look Good Feel Better, 24/7 Helpline, Hope Lodge and Transportation to/from Healthcare Visits.

THIS YEAR, 2016, our Imperial Beach Relay THEME is to honor our Military as well as Paint our World Purple (color of Relay for Life).  All we do in the name of RELAY is synonymous with OUR FREEDOM and we are so very grateful!!  We are proud to invite each of you to join us at RELAY! 

Our Opening Ceremonies are 9am Saturday July 30.  At 11am, we will begin our Military Salute Theme Laps, an hour of songs to honor our military as we walk the track of Mar Vista High.
