How The Relay Works   

The 24-Hour Relay Challenge is Memorial Day tradition in the Bay Area. Youth and adults form teams of 10 people. Each team member walks or runs a mile in a pre-determined order, then passes the baton to a teammate in a cycle that repeats continuously for 24 hours. As the teams are walking/running, there will be a continuous food, fun and entertainment in the largest, safe, alcohol, tobacco and drug free slumber party ever!!! All participants will have a chance to meet other students and adults from the neighboring communities.
