24-Hour Relay Challenge

What is Relay?

The 24 Hour Relay Challenge has been an outstanding tradition, raising thousands of dollars to prevent substance abuse and promote wellness and healthy lifestyles amongst youth and families throughout San Luis Obispo. For 24 hours, teams of 10 run or walk one mile at a time. Relay participants, youth and adult, are expected to represent the positive influences and leadership needed to create a fun, healthy, and drug-free community. It is a community event that brings together people of all ages and abilities to participate in a unique and memorable experience. While the teams are circling the track, a giant community camp-out takes place with continuous entertainment, food, and camping - participants have a chance to meet others who believe in a healthy lifestyle. Without a doubt, it is 24 hours of memorable fun for everyone involved!


Can't commit to the entire weekend?  Need community service hours? Are you a parent or community member who likes to hang out with 650 high school students?


Be a volunteer!  The 24-Hour Relay needs volunteers throughout the entire 24 hour period to help with food, track monitoring, safety and more. 


Shifts are 4 hours, and volunteers can sign up for as little as 1 and as many as 6!  Please click the VOLUNTEER button to sign up as a volunteer.

For an adult or student team, download the registration packet below, and gather 9 others to fill up your team!  There are slots for only 65 teams, and it is common for all 65 slots to be filled!


The registration fee for a team (consisting of 10 students and 2 parent coordinators) is $600. In order to register as a team, submit the registration fee in advance, along with the team registration forms. All contributions are tax deductible. Don't worry, you can get sponsors to help you with the cost of your team's contribution.  Talk to family members, relatives, friends, co-workers, or businesses to see if they will help sponsor you or your team. For example, each student on a student team would only have to get twelve people to contribute $5 each to equal $60 per student.


What about food?  During the Relay, healthy foods, refreshing water, and other drinks will be available for team members and volunteers, for the entire 24 hours, free of charge.  There will be no lunch provided on Saturday, so don't forget to bring a lunch of your own.  All Relay particpants will receive complimentary snacks throughout the event, a healthy dinner Saturday evening, and a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning.


Where will we sleep?  Sleep? You won't want to, you'll be so excited. But just in case, San Luis Obispo High School's Holt Field will be transformed into a giant campground, with all the creature comforts of home such as bathrooms, showers, and even a massage area - not to mention superb entertainment free to all participants! The area will be safe, secure, and staffed with medical and security personnel during the event.

Friday Night Live creates partnerships for postive and healthy youth development, which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities.
