Bellevue Relay for Life cancer walk set June 6-7

Bellevue walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life on June 6-7.

Teams will gather at Bellevue High School for the overnight relay that begins at 2 p.m. on June 6 and goes until 8 a.m. June 7.

Relay For Life allows participants from all walks of life — including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers — to join together to fight cancer.

Relay For Life opens as cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) walk or wheelchair the first lap.

Highlighting the evening is the Luminaria Ceremony held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. The luminaria line the track and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions.
