About the Relay for Life 5K

The Relay for Life 5K road race is the natural progression to the Glastonbury Relay for Life event.

In keeping with the spirit of Dr. Gordy Klatt, who in May of 1985 walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, raising $27,000 for the American Cancer Society, we are working to raise money to fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer.

2015 will be our second 5K road race. The road race is chip timed and awards are given to the top three male and female finishers overall and the top three male and female finishers in different age groups.

While the American Cancer Society is making progress toward a world without cancer, only with your dedication and fundraising efforts can we finish the fight against the disease.

With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer – we’re fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Each person who shares the Relay For Life experience can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten our loved ones or rob anyone of another birthday.
