Relay For Life of Anacortes celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
It is a community gathering where everyone can participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at the high school and take turns walking/running around the track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event – because cancer never sleeps. Relay For Life is an overnight event, this year lasting a total of 18 hours.
Relay For Life brings together people from all walks of life to raise money to help prevent cancer, save lives and diminish suffering from the disease. No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay. Join us today!
When the sun goes down, hundreds of luminaria light the way under the stars to remember those lost to cancer, those fighting cancer and those who have fought cancer and won. This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and perseverance with which we all continue to fight.
All survivors (anyone who has faced a cancer diagnosis) are invited to join us as our honorary guests in the Survivor Lap, which opens the Relay For Life. Their strength and courage help the community see that cancer survivorship is real – that we are making progress in the battle against cancer.
This is a very family oriented event (open to all) with music, food, live and silent auctions, and lots of fun and games for all ages. Please join us – it may change your life forever.
