Enumclaw’s Relay For Life folks keep fighting cancer

Editor’s note: the following was submitted by organizers of Enumclaw’s Relay For Life event.

What is Relay For Life? Good question.

We are a part of American Cancer Society, raising money for all types of cancer. Our goal is to give every cancer patient another birthday.

Come join us on Saturday, July 13, at the J.J. Smith Elementary for the 14th annual Relay For Life of Enumclaw Cancer Walk. Our opening ceremony begins at noon with tributes to cancer survivors and caretakers.

Throughout the event we will have entertainment provided by disc jockey Daron Wolschleger, along with singers, dancers and wide variety of games and contest. You won’t go hungry either with our Relay teams selling food and goodies, plus as a bonus we will have the Taco Time truck on site selling tacos. If that’s not enough, we have a silent auction that promises to be amazing.

We will also have our luminary ceremony at 9:15 p.m. to honor our survivors and loved ones that have lost their battle with cancer. This is a truly amazing, touching tribute that everyone should experience.

This year is the American Cancer Society’s 100th birthday; we are hoping to have another record-breaking fund-raising year. This year’s goal is $117,000; come out and see how the 48 Enumclaw teams are doing to reach this goal.

We hope to raise even more at our “family friendly” event and encourage all to come join us and show your support for this most important cause. It would be hard to find anyone that has not been personally touched by cancer whether it’s you, a loved one or a friend.

We want to thank all our sponsors that have supported us this year, our teams that have worked so hard to raise money and anyone else that has been kind enough to make a donation to our cause.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, July 13. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the entertainment, games and excitement.
