The sixth annual Yucaipa Relay for Life will be held on May 9 and 10 at the Yucaipa Community Park. For those of you who don't know about this event, it is a family friendly overnighter hoping to raise money to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving missions.
Not only are they hoping to raise money, but awareness and strength to cancer survivors and fighters. Survivors can register to win all kinds of prizes and new survivors will receive a 2009 Medal. This event is all about empowering cancer survivors and celebrating their lives. Locks of Love will also be there. Anyone with a minimum of 6 inches of hair can donate it to make wigs for cancer patients. And the those who donate will be treated to a free styling.
