Relay for Life event returns to Issaquah

May 28, 2013

After years away from its home base, Relay for Life will return to the high school where it began.

On June 7 and 8, the 15th annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society will bring out teams of people who have collected money from the community for an all-night endurance event. It will involve a 20-hour team walk around the school’s track, coupled with entertainment and additional events to raise money. Last year, nearly 900 people took part.
