Saturday Scrapbook: Relay For Life Memories

In a shortened Relay For Life, running 15 hours as opposed to the traditional 24, there was still plenty of time to pack in the events. Cancer survivors, caregivers, team members and some visitors from the community just stopping by got to enjoy a variety of activities and take a chance at a number of raffle drawings offered at team booths, set up on the soccer fields at Oakdale High School for the combined Oakdale-Escalon-Riverbank-Waterford event. There was also food, games and more. Here are a few photos from the event.
