Join more than 30 teams raising money for cancer research at this year’s Relay For Life, taking place at the Southwest Washington Fairgrounds. The event officially opens at 4 p.m. May 17. More details on the exact schedule is forthcoming, but fundraising for the event is taking place right now. Relay For Life brings together hundreds of people each year to walk the loop around the fairgrounds, enjoy each other’s company, reminisce and most of all raise money for cancer research through the American Cancer Society. For more information on how to join or donate, visit the Relay's official website.
