Relay For Life

I noticed that someone just posted a comment asking for information about the Relay For Life here in Stanwood. For those of you who live out of town, or who are not currently on a team, I will attach the link to the Stanwood Relay page. Save the link as one of your favorites so you can log on each day and watch the community get closer and closer to reaching our goals!

Last year the community had 35 survivors walk the survivor lap.
30 teams sign up to participate.
And, we raised $81,000.

Our goals for this year are:
75 survivors.
50 Teams.

As you follow the link you will see that as a community we have already raised $10,000 and we have already surpassed the 30 teams that we had last year! We are off to a great start and we are still 5 months away from the walk. As you look at the new Relay website, you can sign up a team or make a donation to a participant if you wish to. If nothing else, look at which businesses have made large donations to sponsor the event... and thank them for their involvement when you enter their business.

If you are a cancer survivor, we encourage you to come walk the survivor lap with us on the night of the event (JUNE 1ST, 2007). The webpage is not set up for survivors to sign up online, but please email Angie at if you want to come and participate. She is in charge of survivors and she has been working hard to make sure it will be a memorable experience for you.

Survivors: Make sure Angie gets you on her list so she can order you a free Survivor T-shirt!


By the way, the webpage can be a little confusing your first time. To see who in the community is participating.... scroll down and look at the section called Team Rank on the right hand side at the bottom. Just below the top 5 ranking you will see the more button. If you click on that it will bring up ALL of the teams (and individuals) in the event so far. Let me know if you need help with anything.
