12 hour Relay for Life reminds Tri-Cities that cancer never sleeps

Relay for Life supports cancer survivors and patients in the Tri-Cities.

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Whether you yourself have been directly impacted by cancer or someone you know is dealing with the diagnosis, tomorrow you can all join together and walk in the relay for life.

The American Cancer Society Fundraiser runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to remind us that cancer never sleeps.

Teams take turns walking laps around Jon Dam Plaza in Richland to honor loved ones lost, survivors of all cancers and raise money to make a global impact on fighting cancer. Members of the American Cancer Society Tri-Cities have taken initiative to make this year bigger than ever.

"I had a goal of raising $2,500 for our team and we've surpassed that, I think we're at $3,200 now,” said Logistics Lead Keith Cowan. “So to see our union members come together, fight cancer and bring awareness to the cause, it shows the brotherhood we really have."

It's not too late to sign up and or more information, visit the relay for life site.
