Welcome To The Lynden, Washington

2016 Relay For Life Event





For another Relay For Life event!  We wrapped up Saturday, June 18th during the downpour of rain, but the raindrops didn’t dampen the impact that our dedicated supporters will have in the fight to end cancer!  The donations continue (it’s never too late to donate) to trickle in, so we will watch the event fundraising total climb, and be proud about the support that Lynden, WA will provide to cancer researchers and those currently fighting the disease!


This event would have been impossible if it were not for the support of many, many individuals, including the volunteers who raised funds and walked laps, the sponsors who donated funds and in-kind goods, the speakers who shared their stories at both the opening and luminaria ceremonies, the Lynden firefighters who cooked a tasty breakfast for everyone Saturday morning, the caregivers who support people with cancer, a small but mighty team of community volunteers who came together monthly to create the event, and of course our cancer survivors.  These folks proudly wore their purple shirts and symbolize why Relay For Life is so important, it’s the work we do to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors!

Please join us Tuesday, June 28th from 6-7:00 pm in the People’s Place building for our 2016 Relay Wrap Up Meeting.


We need to start the process months in advance to plan for the next Relay For Life of Lynden.  The first step in this process is to evaluate how we did this year, so we want to hear from you!    You aren’t sure this event should be over night, or you want to see a fun run added, or you wish there were more activities for small children…this is exactly the feedback we need in creating future events.  We hope to see you at the June 28th meeting for your help in creating a community event for Lynden to support and enjoy. 



The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. With the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 500 lives a day. Please join us and take action against a disease that has taken too much!
