Columbia Basin Relay for Life to take place in Ephrata this Friday

Relay For Life gives people a chance to reflect and show their support

Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Relay For Life is a community event to raise cancer awareness and to help in the fight to cure cancer. Participants can sign up as late as the day of the event.

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in thousands of communities and 27 countries. It ran from 6 p.m.to 6 a.m. Saturday, June 9.

Hoffman, a 2018 honorary survivor, was no stranger to Relay For Life.

The relay has been around since 1985 and Scioto County has been doing the relay for life since 1998.

Hoffman said cancer care and research have made a lot of progress in the past 25 years, and hopefully that knowledge can continue to grow while minimizing the "collateral damage" to people who have the disease.

The event took place from 7 p.m. Thursday until 7 a.m. Friday morning. "Relay For Life is a festival-like fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path".

Leah Ott cuts Cady Smith's hair at the Relay For Life event Friday night in New Richmond. By taking part in Relay For Life, Larson said, "We're celebrating my mom's life", as well as working to help keep other people from ever having to lose a family member to cancer.

We come together every year at more than 3,500 Relay events around the country to support and celebrate survivors and caregivers.

He said his father, who years later was diagnosed with lymphoma, kidney and several other cancers, survived thanks to the type of work Relay For Life and the medical field does.
