No dark clouds are going to spoil THIS day of giving & caring at the Menifee RELAY FOR LIFE which starts tomorrow, Saturday April 9th at 9:00 am and ends Sunday April 10th at 9:00 am, on the football field at Paloma Valley High School.
I talked with Paula Vigorito today (the online chairperson and captain of "Team Kelli" - so named after her daughter Kelli's battle that was won against Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2007). Besides giving me the current numbers, which blew me away, Paula told me that with the huge growth that the Menifee Relay has experienced in this short period of time, "We are really making our mark in the Relay World."
How true that must be. I remember well the night of the first Menifee Relay for Life back in 2006. At midnight the only person I saw on the field was a Bank of America employee named "Chauncy" .... who had fallen asleep in the middle of the track.
The Menifee Relay for life has grown this year to a whopping:
Heritage High School High has the largest group of participants - over 50 so far!
It's not too late for YOU to add to its numbers. Come visit (for free), or become a registered Relay-er.... ($10 registration fee). ALL ARE WELCOME!!
If you have never been to a Relay for Life, it is a FANTASTIC event. Full of entertainment, fun, and VERY moving at times. I think EVERYONE should experience a Relay for Life. One minute your laughing and dancing, and then 10 minutes later you are looking for the nearest box of Kleenex Tissue. A very emotional event, one that I think everyone should experience.
