Relay for Life
Group is still needing funds to make its goal
On May 31, members from our community took to the track at Issaquah High School for Issaquah’s 2014 Relay For Life. As always, it was those involved who made this year’s Relay For Life an outstanding event and fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.
“Thank you” doesn’t seem enough for what the community gave to Relay For Life this year. We are so grateful for: the planning team made of volunteers who spent the year organizing the event; the team captains and team members who raised money and awareness for cancer research during the Relay season; our day of event volunteers who helped set up and prepare; and our sponsors and community businesses that made generous donations.

In the past few years, you have most likely heard people around you discussing Obamacare. Chances are you haven’t really paid much attention to what they were saying. I mean, as a teen, it doesn’t affect you right? Think again.
Before I begin, what is Obamacare?

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Issaquah residents who don’t have health insurance can now enroll in affordable health insurance options online at www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
Still, enrolling might seem daunting for anyone who doesn’t have good Internet access, or who doesn’t feel comfortable signing up using a website.
That’s why the city of Issaquah and Public Health – Seattle & King County have teamed up for an in-person enrollment event from noon to 6 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Eagle Room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.
