Escalon Times - - NEWS -

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.
