Students in San Luis Obispo are lacing up their walking shoes and testing their endurance Saturday night.
San Luis Obispo High School is hosting its 20th annual 24-Hour Relay to raise money for drug and alcohol awareness programs. At least one person on each team of 10 must be walking throughout the entire 24-hour period. It kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday and ends at 9 a.m. Sunday.
"The biggest goal for us here today is to raise awareness," said Relay Director Frank Warren. "Drug and alcohol issues affect everybody and if we can go out here and have a great, clean, drug and alcohol-free environment, a good time with one another, then we can do that when relay isn't happening."
Organizers say they have already raised about $15,000.
