Yakima Relay For Life Most Successful Relay in Eastern Washington

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. -- The Relay For Life in Yakima was held Saturday in Franklin Park.

The walk benefits cancer research and organizers tell us that Yakima's event is the most successful relay in all of Eastern Washington. During the two days, they hope to raise more than $215,000 to help stop cancer, a disease that unfortunately affects so many of us.

"Based on the statistics," Beth Parker said, "somebody in your family or somebody in your neighbors family has been touched by cancer. So I think it's something we can all relate to."

If you want to head down to the event, at 9:30 organizers will light the luminarie bags and hundreds of people will camp out overnight in Franklin Park.
