Relay for Life in Grandview

Posted: Updated:

GRANDVIEW, Wash. -- More than 20 teams are participating in this year's Relay for Life event in Grandview.

The 24-hour walk event started at noon on Saturday and will continue into Sunday.

So far, more than 300 participants have helped raise more than $30,000 for the American Cancer Society.

People who have survived from cancer will be wearing their purple shirts throughout the event.

KNDO spoke to Eileen Duncan, a cancer survivor at the event. This is her tenth year of participating in Relay for Life.

"It's really kind of a neat feeling to feel that. And everybody's applauding as you walk by and it's just, I feel like applauding for them for being here," explained Duncan about her experience during the survivors walk.

The Relay for Life event is being held at Grandview High School's Rich Leenhouts Stadium, located at 1601 W. 5th Street.
