Escalon Adds To Mix Of Combined Relay For Life
Several cancer survivors, caregivers and team members made the short journey to Oakdale for the 24-hour Relay For Life on Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6. Attendees helped raise money for the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer as well as bringing awareness about the disease and information on ways to help protect yourself from certain types of cancers.
Here is a scrapbook of photos from the event, hosted at the Oakdale High School soccer fields.
