American Cancer Society’s Clark County Relay For Life

Has your life been touched by cancer—either yourself, a loved one, or a friend? If you’ve answered “yes”–and most all of us have–consider gathering a team together for fundraise to fight this dreadful disease. Sponsored in part by PeaceHealth Southwest, the money raised at this event provides programs and services to countless patients and families in our community, including educational patient materials; patient lodging; and the Look Good, Feel Better program.

  • Organized, overnight community fundraising walk
  • Teams of people camp out around a track
  • Members of each team take turns walking around the track
  • Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie

Family-friendly environment for the entire community. Because it’s a team event, individual participants are not required to be there the entire time. But it’s so much fun, you’ll find it hard to leave!

WHEN: July 11 to 12, 2015
WHERE: Columbia River High School
