Survivors Lap to mark opening of American Cancer Society Relay For Life June 1 in Edmonds

Relay For Life of South Snohomish — a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society — will kick off at noon June 1 at Edmonds District Stadium with a special Survivors Lap honoring those who have defeated cancer.

Relay For Life is a unique grassroots fundraising event in which individuals and teams of participants in nearly 5,100 communities nationwide walk around a track overnight. The money raisedsupports the American Cancer Society’s efforts “to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” the organization said in a news release about the event.

Relay For Life events are held at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during the event.

If you are a cancer survivor or caregiver and would like to take part in the Relay For Life of South Snohomish, contact your American Cancer Society representative at 425-404-2248 or visit www.southsnohomishrelay.org. All survivors receive a free Relay For Life T-shirt.
