The Washington Chapter of the American Cancer Society and Swedish Health Services have partnered to host the event

Relay For Life began in 1985, in Tacoma with a local colorectal surgeon, Dr. Gordy Klatt, who walked and ran around a track for 24 hours and raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year, Relay For Life will take place in nearly 6,000 communities in the United States and 21 other countries.
