The ultimate walk-a-thon is coming to Montebello.
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life will be held at Schurr High School on Saturday, June 7 - Sunday June 8. This event is held nationwide throughout the year and raises millions of dollars for cancer research and treatment.
Cancer survivors are invited a breakfast at 8:30 and may join the first lap, known as the Survivor Lap at 9am on Saturday. Teams of people & individuals will thereafter continuously walk for a 24-hour period.
Individuals can walk for as little as a $10 donation. Entertainment is provided throughout the event, including 2 former American Idol contestants. Various organizations sell food & other items to raise additional donations at the event.
MontebelloMom.com reader, Monica Olivas, suggests participants bring their own chairs & shade umbrellas to enjoy the entertainment.
