Starting at 10am Saturday morning and ending 10am Sunday, come down to Downingtown West High School to participate in this 24 hour event.
“Cancer Doesn’t Sleep and Neither Do We”
Relay for Life is a 24 hour event to show cancer that participants will not stop fighting this disease. You can register a team to take turns walking or running the designated paths set up at the school. Those participating will also set up a campsite with their teams. At the campsites, teams will be fundraising and finding donations that will benefit the team’s fundraising goal. The campsites are decorated according to the event’s theme. This year, Relay for Life’s theme is underwater to “Sea a Cure”
