I’m so honored to be be featured in my local magazine for my volunteer work with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event! I’ve been involved in the downtown San Diego Relay for Life since it’s inception in some way or another, and I’ve seen it grow from an event that had around 100 participants and $8,000.00 raised in that first year, to the largest Relay in all of San Diego county, and one of the top 20 Relays in the entire state of California, with thousands of participants that have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, and through the Relay for Life we can join together to celebrate those who have won their battle, remember those who have not, and fight back against this terrible disease. This really is a life-changing event and there are Relays going on year-round all around the country and the world!! Check out www.relayforlife.org for more information about this amazing event and how you can get involved.
