“The American Cancer Society works 24 hours, 7 days a week to save lives from cancer and creating a world with more birthdays. It is important that we come together – as a community, as volunteers, as survivors and as leaders – to finish the fight,” “By lending your support to the Friday Harbor Relay event this year, you’ll be lending your support to the Society’s efforts to support our local community in the fight and bring an end to cancer as we know it.” During Relay For Life events, participants take turns walking or running around path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps.

Fun, food, memorabilia and luminarias are just some of what to expect.
