THANK YOU WWU
For another successful Relay For Life event! We wrapped up Sunday, May 15th tired, cold, and wind-blown, but excited to boast that our college campus and dedicated volunteers raised just over $20,000.00 in the fight to end cancer! The donations continue (it’s never too late to donate) to trickle in, so we will continue to watch the event total climb, and know that we can support more people as they call themselves cancer survivors!
Plenty of fun was had by those who walked laps, those who came out in support of their friends/family, and those who were on campus for Back 2 Bellingham, and just wandered in to see what was happening on the Recreation Center track! The event would have been impossible without the support of some 300 different individuals, including the Event Management Team and performers who sang, danced, and showcased their talents. Additionally, we thank our sponsors, WWU for hosting us on campus, and we celebrate our cancer survivors and caregivers for sharing their journey with us as they battle the disease we want to wipe out!
Highest Fundraising Team-WWU Hip Hop Dance Team
Highest Fundraising Individual-Kim Smith and Carissa Ofsthus (at the event, Kim was the leader, but with post-event donations, Carissa is now in the lead)

Best Camp Site Winner-Cancer Busting Pedestrians
