At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Relay events are up to 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office will officially launch the newly formed School Services Unit Friday, March 15, 2013, at Woodside Elementary School in unincorporated Snohomish County near Mill Creek.

After the Dec. 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Sheriff John Lovick proposed the School Services Unit to address his vision that the Sheriff’s Office be a school safety resource to our county’s unincorporated schools.

“As far as we know the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office School Services Unit approach to school safety is the first of its kind in the state of Washington, possibly even the nation,” said Sheriff Lovick. “It builds on establishing and maintaining relationships between law enforcement and school districts, school leadership, teachers, staff, students and their families.”
