Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the third annual  American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of Lake Stevens gets underway with teams of residents gathering at Lake Stevens High School on Friday, May 10, 2013.

The 2013 Relay for Life committee will be holding their Kick-Off event on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at the Lake Stevens Fire District Administration Building located at 1825 South Lake Stevens Rd. at 6 p.m.
If you are interested in finding out more about Relay or if you have a team and are ready to get started again for the new year, please join us for this kick-off event.

Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out 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 Relay.

Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life—all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

“Relay is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those we’ve lost, and fight back against the disease,” said Kim Demary, Relay for Life of Lake Stevens Co-Event Chair. “Many of the participants are cancer survivors, which serves as a reminder that Lake Stevens is not immune to this disease and that by participating in Relay, we are joining with the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.”

Funds raised at Relay For Life of Lake Stevens are enabling the American Cancer Society to impact the lives of those touched by cancer within the community.
