Skyline Striders at the Relay for Life

relay for lifeBeta Theta Omicron organized and participated in the San Bruno Relay for Life on September 28. The Skyline Striders walked the track at Taylor Middle School from 10 am to 10 pm to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  Chapter members raised $1500. Although the Relay is over, you can still contribute to the American Cancer Society by following the link under events at http://skylinecollege.edu/boo.

Beta Theta Omicron has a long history with the Relay for Life events. In 2009, the chapter worked with the American Cancer Society to hold the first San Bruno Relay. That Relay was held on the Skyline College track on one of our foggiest days. Visibility was limited to 300 feet, approximately the width of the track. At the start of each North Peninsula Relay for Life, the Board Chair always takes a moment to thank Skyline College for holding the first Relay for Life in San Bruno, and starting a beautiful tradition.
