Covina Relay for Life is this Saturday May 17th

The Relay for Life comes to Covina this Saturday, May 17th  at Northview High and starts at 9am! Join our city and get involved!

 

 

The Relay for Life lets people of all ages get involved and raise not only money, but also awareness, support, and most importantly, hope. The fight to end cancer is far from over, but events like the relay help raise funds and awareness to fund research that will hopefully one day end cancer. The hope that one day we will all live in a world without cancer is why we relay, thank you to everyone taking part in this year’s event to help eradicate this disease.

 

Together we can bring and end to cancer!
