Along with raising thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society, participants in the 2017 Relay For Life of Escalon had plenty of fun during the 24-hour event, staged Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21 on the campus of Escalon High School.

Teams offered information about ways to protect yourself from cancer, provided updates on breakthroughs in research, had food, beverages, games and more to keep Relayers busy for the full 24 hours. Here are a few photos from the event.
