The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life returns to San Marcos once more this April. The 24-hour event celebrates and supports survivors, caregivers, and those currently battling cancer.

Relay for Life of San Marcos will be held at San Elijo Middle School and begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 16. Teams of friends, families, and community members take turns walking around the track in recognition of the round-the-clock struggle to combat cancer. Teams are welcome to camp out for the entire event, or individuals can just come for the hours they’re available. Entertainment and activities will be held throughout the event, in addition to the special Opening Ceremony, Survivors Lap, Caregivers Lap, Luminaria Ceremony, and Closing Ceremony.
