The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is a 24-Hour Celebration of Life dedicated to present and former Cancer patients, their families and friends. Relay For Life raises funds for the American Cancer Society while raising awareness that cancer can and will be beaten!
Relay For Life teams are formed from companies, schools, clubs, and other organizations to walk, run or roll in relay fashion for 24 hours around North Thurston High School's track. The field becomes a "tent city" as teams camp-out waiting for their turn to walk.
Cancer survivors are the focus of Relay For Life, which starts off with a Survivor's Walk, where all cancer survivors take the first lap to celebrate their victory over cancer.
Another highlight of our Relay For Life is the Midnight Memorial. For a small donation, individuals may dedicate a luminary candle to remember a loved one who has lost the battle with cancer.
The day and night are filled with entertainment, food, music, prizes and festivities.
Relay For Life-There is no finish line until there's a cure!
4/18/05- The site has been updated with all the latest information I have. I do apologize for the delay in making these important changes. I have been swamped with business issues and was out of town for a week. If you see anything I missed, please let me know.
New for this year, a bright new look with lots of updates, new pictures, and links. I hope you like the new look, and find the site easy to navigate. I will be happy to respond to your ideas on how this site can be more helpful. Please drop me a note.
One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer of some kind during their lifetime. The American Cancer Society's web page is the best place to get comprehensive cancer information and connect with others who are touched by the disease. You can also learn more about the Relay For Life, and take advantage of some tools they have provided to assist us in our fight against cancer. You can even apply for a Relay For Life MasterCard!
