This year, the communities of Scripps Ranch, Mira Mesa, and Rancho Peñasquitos are teaming up to host Relay For Life of Rancho-Scripps-Mesa. The 24-hour relay will take place at Hilltop Park in Rancho Peñasquitos, beginning Saturday, June 24 at 9 a.m. and ending Sunday, June 25 at 9 a.m. The new location will host the same favorite Relay For Life traditions: the inspiring opening ceremony, the survivors’ lap, the caregivers’ lap, the luminaria ceremony, and the celebratory closing ceremony. Participants can also look forward to the Mr. and Miss Relay pageant, a comedic, cross-dressing pageant where the most successful fundraiser wins the day. Eligibility and requirements are listed at the event website.

Teams are invited to pick up their t-shirts and set up their campsites the night before the relay – Friday, June 23, after 4 p.m. Learn more, register, and donate at
