TEMECULA – Throngs of volunteers led by reality TV show personality Gillian Larson, of “Survivor, Gabon,” are plotting the sixth edition of Reality Rally, set for April 7-9.

Reality Rally is most certainly an opportunity for fans of reality television shows to get up-close and personal with their favorite personalities, but it is also an opportunity to support those who are fighting for their lives against breast cancer.
