A kickoff event to celebrate the new Relay For Life of Rainier Foothills is planned for the evening of Jan. 25.

While Relay For Life has been a fixture in Enumclaw and Buckley, the individual community events have now been combined under the “Rainier Foothills” banner. This year’s Relay will take place from 6 p.m. May 19 until 8 a.m. May 20 at Glacier Middle School in downtown Buckley.

An open house to celebrate this year’s Relay event and get volunteers involved is planned for 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the 25th in the Enumclaw High School commons.

The meeting will give teams and individuals the opportunity to sign up for Relay 2017. Additionally, there will be information about both Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society.

Information about the venture can be found by visiting or by contacting ACS staff member Katrina Minton-Davis at or event lead Joanne Campbell at

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 20 countries.
