In 2013, the Relay For Life of Highline saw over 275 people from the cities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park and SeaTac participating on 29 teams, and raising over $64,000. Founded 28 years ago by Tacoma physician Dr. Gordy Klatt, Relay For Life has grown to be the most recognized fundraising event for cancer nationwide, held in more than 5,000 communities and raising more than $3 billion toward cancer research, advocacy, education and patient services. Relay For Life is a family-oriented event in which teams will walk or run in shifts around the track for 12 to 24 hours. Participants traditionally camp out on the field, and, when they are not taking their turn walking, enjoy a variety of entertainment & activities. The Relay For Life of Highline will be held on the weekend of June 7th and 8th at Highline Memorial Stadium in Burien.
