Relay for Life

Downtown Hollister is swimming in purple to support Relay for Life that's taking place this weekend at the San Benito High School football field. This local annual event is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Participants form teams and each member takes turns walking around the track for 24 hours from Friday evening (July 31). According to the Hollister Relay for Life web page, 27 teams and 198 participants have raised nearly $56,000 so far. For more information about this event, click here.

Today I'm participating in Our World Tuesday. If you'd like to join or check out posts by other participants, click here.

    Thank you for visiting my blog :-) Mind if I ask you how you did a link of your blog on the comments? That made it easier for me to visit your blog :-)

    1. Hi, Maya, yes, the participants are amazing men and women. Many of them are involved every year.
