This year’s Relay for Life of Highline will be held throughout downtown Burien on Saturday, June 11, from 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.

In previous years, this all-day fundraiser for the American Cancer Society has been held at both Highline Memorial and Mt. Rainier High School stadiums, but this year’s will be more embedded in the community, with walkers walking throughout the downtown business core starting at Burien Town Square Park.

“Join us and walk to fight cancer June 11th @ Burien Town Square Park,” reads an announcement. “From 10 am to 11 pm. Remember the ones that left us too early, support the people fighting cancer now, bring your friends and family and don’t be afraid of emotions…”

There have already been numerous local fundraisers for this cause, and according to the organization’s website, so far 29 teams and 242 participants have raised $32,763.60

“The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement symbolizes hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love,” reads an announcement. “If cancer has touched your life, participating in a Relay For Life event is a way to take action and help finish the fight. This is your opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember those you have lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight back and help end cancer forever.”
