MultiCare Center For Healthy Living

Why We Formed a Relay For Life Fundraising Team

Welcome to our team page! We are a team composed of family and friends who are dedicated to KICKING cancer our of our lives.

Most of our team members, are paras and teachers who work together, but we join in and welcome our family members, and friends as well as a couple MultiCare employees who make up our team. What we do have in common is our dedication to fighting cancer all year, but especially on our 24 hour weekend.

Cancer has touched too many of our lives, so we decided to unite and fight back by raising funds and walking in our local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event.

As a team, we are taking action to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem. At our Relay event, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in their lifesaving mission.

Our event will be held June 2-3, 2017 from noon to noon at Mt. Tahoma High School on their track. We are MultiCare Center For Healthy Living team and will welcome you from our BIG white tent that is on the track and right across from home grandstands.

If you are a Survivor, please join us as we do the lst lap and then enjoy a free meal prepared by Olive Garden. As a survivor you can register online or at the track and get a nice, free medal and your purple survivor shirt. At 10pm, you can return and enjoy the Luminaria ceremony complete with bagpiper and luminaria bags tht will burn all night as we remember our loved ones gone too soon, or those still fighting.

Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time. TOGETHER, we will make a difference. Thanking you for always supporting us in our fight to find a cure. Marian Swanson, Team Captain
