Relay for Life to march on South Whidbey

Relay For Life is just around the corner.

This year marks the American Cancer Society’s 12th Relay For Life of South Whidbey.

The event is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. Friday, June 20 at the track at South Whidbey High School and runs through 11 a.m. Saturday, June 21.

Friday evening’s formal ceremonies include the Survivors Walk and dinner, and a late night candle lit luminary ceremony to honor those lost to cancer.

Committee members have this year’s relay jammed with events for the family, including a silent auction and the Jail Bail fundraiser. Carnival events are scheduled for Saturday. Music and games continue all through the night to keep up the spirit — and the walkers.

Call Virginia Bloom if you are interested in being on a team or forming a team for this year’s relay at 331-3132. Call Angela Vosburg at 331-1800 if you are interested in helping to sponsor the event. Contact Peter Andersen at for information or to volunteer to help the relay.
