Yakima Ramps Up for This Weekend’s Relay for Life [VIDEO]

Yakima’s 24-hour Relay For Life event kicks off Saturday morning at Franklin Middle School.

Spokesperson Carolyn Tom says the event starts at noon and that hundreds of people are expected to be a part of the event that raises money for the American Cancer Society. About 1,200 took part last year, and organizers say at least 800 have signed up so far.

“My friends talk about how they’ve done the relay for several years now and their lists of in-memory and in-honor are switching. Where it used to be longer for in-memory and shorter in-honor-o,f but now there’s more people surviving.”

It’s not too late to get involved in a variety of ways. You can be a part of the event or you can sponsor a team.

You’ll find all the information at the American Cancer Society’s website, cancer.org.

If you are interested in creating a luminary, you can make one and take it to the event or make one at a special station set up Saturday afternoon at the Franklin Middle School track.

The event continues until noon Sunday.
