Create More Birthdays!

Volunteers needed for 2016 South Snohomish County American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

If you had the ability to create a world with more birthdays, would you do it?

This year South Snohomish County will be holding its American Cancer Society Relay For Life to support the fight for a cancer-free world on Saturday, June 4, 2016, at McCollum Park.

Formerly Lynnwood and Mukilteo/Edmonds/Mill Creek held separate Relay For Life events. This will be the first year combining Lynnwood, Edmonds, and Mill Creek to encompass a greater geographical area and to pool resources.

Relay For Life will bring our community together to honor individuals who have fought bravely against the merciless disease of cancer.

Survivors, their families and all those who have been affected by this disease come together to walk, run and camp out around a track to create a united network of support and dedication.

Our Relay begins with a Survivor Lap, an inspiring time where survivors are honored by participants in support of their incredible fight.

One of the most memorable events during the night is the Luminaria Ceremony, where everyone has the opportunity to light candles and take a moment to honor those who have beat the disease, those who are still fighting, and those who have courageously fought but have lost their lives to cancer.

Funds raised at Relay For Life support programs and services for patients and their families in South Snohomish County.

The American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program provides cancer patients with beauty techniques to help them cope and feel good about themselves during radiation and chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments.

For more information on South Snohomish County’s Relay event and how you can become involved, visit the Relay for Life website.

Are you interested in being a part of our fun and exciting planning team? Email Dana Taylor at dana.taylor@cancer.org for more information on opportunities of all shapes and sizes or call the Great West Division of American Cancer Society at 425/404-2228.

Let’s come together to add another birthday candle.
