(It is Paint Our Town Purple Week)…It is an awareness campaign for the El Centro Relay for Life.
The Relay will be held March 22 at Southwest High School. This week purple ribbons are being placed around El Centro. The week culminates with volunteers setting up at the corner of Main Street and Imperial Avenue on Saturday, February 15th. They will have purple buckets, and from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon they will be collecting donations. All funds raised go towards cancer research and the treatment of cancer patients. Calexico and Brawley also host Relays in their communities.
