WALLA WALLA — American Cancer Society Relay For Life will begin this year’s fundraising with an event starting at 6 p.m., Jan. 7, at Main Street Studios, 207 W. Main St.
The kickoff is for those who want to get involved in Relay For Life and make a difference in the fight against cancer as a volunteer, team captain or participant. The event will feature speakers who have benefitted from the funds raised at Relay events, and will honor cancer survivors.
As a grass roots fundraising program, the Relay For Life movement mobilizes people and organizations in communities to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and provide everyone an opportunity to fight back against the disease.
