Relay for Life of Grays Harbor starts in Hoquiam

May 31, 2013

The Relay for Life of Grays Harbor has officially kicked off for it’s 27th year.

Volunteers, cancer survivors, family members, and friends started around the track on Friday evening. Thousands are expected to come to the Seabreeze Oval at Hoquiam High School 24 hour event.

Not only can those who attend fund cancer research at the event, but they can be research. The American Cancer Society has a tent set up for a cancer research study. Blood will be drawn, and residents can participate in an ongoing study to assist locally in curing cancer.

Last year the event raised over $420 thousand for the American Cancer Society, and just before the opening ceremony the American Cancer Society showed Grays Harbor already with $203,247.13 raised.

Teams have until August 31 to continue raising money to meet their goal for this year.
