Relay For Life is more than a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society – it’s a community event.

Oakley is gearing up to host its fifth annual Relay For Life May 18 and 19 at the Freedom High School track. So far, 39 teams comprising 350 volunteers have registered to participate in the 24-hour event and raised $36,000.

“Relay For Life is truly a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Event Chair Anastasia Billings. “We have participants of every age, teachers and students from every school, a variety of businesses and people from all neighborhoods who come out and work together toward a common goal: to find a cure for cancer.”
