It’s hard to believe that the second annual Relay for Life Lake Stevens is already up and running but it was evident on Sunday, Oct. 9 that Lake Stevens is ready for another record year as folks showed up to celebrate and get hyped for the 2012 event which will be held on May 18 and 19.

“One person can make a difference, that’s what Relay is all about,” Carrie Blankenship, Team Building Chair said.

A video that was made by Shane Kantzer of the Lake Stevens Journal at last year’s Relay for Life was shared with the group. It showed many of the great moments at Lake Stevens’ first-ever Relay event and brought tears to many in the crowd.

Survivors were honored with roses which left people with a feeling of hope.
