Uncategorized Relay for Life: Coyotes battle for Yayo Posted on April 9, 2013 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr (PALM SPRINGS) — If you want to make a difference in someone’s life, it often begins with the first step. Literally. The SoCal Coyotes, who have rallied around teammate Brian “Pit-Stop” Garcia and his 12-year-old brother Yayo’s struggle against leukemia, will participate in the American Cancer Society’s ‘Relay for Life’ on his behalf and in support of all those who battle the disease. The Coyote organization has asked for players, coaches and the public to help. By simply clicking on the link below, you can sign up below the team as an individual participant. “If the team can raise $500 by the 15th of April,” explains team vice president Laurie Beth Miller, “the Coyote team logo will be added to the sponsor t-shirts that each participant receives. We’re positive that with each of us doing even just the bare minimum, we can reach that goal. What better way to ‘defend the shield’ than to march for it? Coyote up!” The Coyotes have ‘signed’ Yayo to a Coyote ‘contract,’ and Garcia has worn No. 1 in Yayo’s honor through the WWFL playoffs, including this weekend’s championship game at UNLV.
