Mercer Island High School Relay for Life is May 12
Relay for Life is an overnight fundraiser that will be held at MIHS on May 12.
The fundraiser raises money for the American Cancer Society, which focuses on finding a cure for cancer, while also providing resources and aid to cancer survivors, caregivers and families.
The group needs everyone’s help to make the event a huge success. This year, the goal is to meet or exceed $100,000 as a community. The goal of Relay for Life is to have at least one member of each team walking or running the track through the day and night because “cancer never sleeps.”
The event begins in the early afternoon with the Survivor’s Lap, and continues until the next day.
Activities, games and music are all included in the event schedule, and the Luminaria Ceremony after dark honors those who have been affected by cancer.
Registration is still open, and all members of the community are welcome to participate.
