In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising nearly $5 billion to fight cancer. Survivors and caregivers alike have described attending a Relay For Life event as a life changing experience. Planned activities happen at each event including survivor and caregiver meals, special laps and commemorative mementos. Join us on Saturday, Feb. 28th from Noon to Sunday, Feb. 29th at 8:00 a.m. at Evelyn Greer Park in Pinecrest and become a part of the experience.
