Are you ready to TEAM UP TO FINISH THE FIGHT?
What an awesome kickoff!
Did you see the feature in The Olympian? We want to thank Rolf and Janet for joining us for our Relay kickoff celebration!
Top Fundraiser Tori Fairhurst shared her story of why she Relays, and challenged each of us to commit to finish the fight this year. As she finished, we rounded up the Relayers and headed onto the Timberline track for a 2014 Starter Lap to kick off the year.
We celebrated some incredible successes:
Thurston County moved from the #13 Relay For Life in the Great West Division (a 12 state area) to the #5 event last year -- now we are the second largest Relay in all of Washington state, behind only the original Relay For Life in Tacoma!
We recognized Connolly's Crew as a Top Nationwide Team -- the team moved from #37 last year to #31 -- out of more than 250,000 Relay teams across the nation.
We also cheered on the news of the total number of cancer research grants that have been awarded here in Washington state: there are more than $8 million research funds in action RIGHT NOW in Western Washington, fueled by our Relay For Life funds!
If you missed the kickoff, we invite you to join us to team up to finish the fight this year! Click on "sign up" above to be part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of Relay here in Thurston County.
Want to see more photos? We have uploaded a number of them to our Facebook album from the Tailgate Party. Tag away!
Get More Involved!
In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a great place to take action and make noise. The Relay For Life movement features community and campus events that offer an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won't stop until we finish the fight against cancer!
