On Saturday, May 19, Relay for Life of Calabasas and Woodland Hills returned to AE Wright Middle School to host their annual fundraiser. Featuring fun activities, entertainment, performances, and tons of games, the signature event for the American Cancer Society included teams, sponsors, families, businesses, sports groups, schools, and more participating to take action and make a global impact on cancer.
