Highline walkers will walk around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life starting at 4pm Saturday, June 13th and ending at 8am on Sunday, June 14th.

This celebration of life brings numerous groups and individuals concerned about cancer together for a unified effort to fight back.

Twenty-eight teams of enthusiastic citizens will gather at Highline Memorial Stadium for an overnight relay against cancer, and here’s the schedule of entertainment during the event:

  • 3pm: Opening Ceremonies and Cancer Survivor Victory Lap
  • 5:30pm: Aeolin
  • 7:30pm: Cake Walk
  • 10pm: Luminaria Ceremony
  • 6am: Stretches
  • 6:30am: Pancake Breakfast
  • 7am: Limbo!
  • 8am: Closing Ceremonies

Highlighting the evening is the Luminaria Ceremony held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. The luminaria line the track and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions.

Some of the sponsors of the Relay For Life include:

  • Highline Medical Center
  • Vertex Business Services
  • Holland America
  • Fred Meyer
  • Sal’s Deli
  • The B-Town Blog (we’ll see you there!)

Relay For Life is a unique fundraising event that allows participants from all walks of life — including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches, community volunteers and even community-activist local news blogs — to join together to fight cancer. Relay For Life reminds us that progress has been made in the fight against cancer and that everyone who participates is making a difference.
