City of Issaquah and Eastside Fire & Rescue employees came in third in overall fundraising for the 2010 Relay for Life event. They raised more than $9,000 for the American Cancer Society and were presented with the Diamond Award for their efforts.

“Participating in Relay has become a city tradition for us,” city spokeswoman Autumn Monahan said. “Our employees faithfully support the cause through donations, volunteer hours and participation in our annual citywide fundraising event.”

The teams who raised the most money in the Issaquah Relay for Life were Team Aloha with $55,750, and Hank’s High Flyers with $9,583, according to the event website.

“It’s a wonderful way to support those affected by cancer, many of whom are our family members, co-workers and dear friends,” Monahan said.
