Kennewick Community Joins Hands To Show Unity Against Breast Cancer

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A human chain between two rival high schools was created in Kennewick Wednesday afternoon.

It's all in the name of breast cancer.  

Anyone driving here near the intersection of Union Street and Clearwater Ave. at 1:20 Wednesday afternoon might have had to wait in their car as people in our community joined hands in the fight against cancer.  

More than 3 miles of students from Kamiakin and Southridge and people in the community created a human chain connecting the two high schools throughout the streets of Kennewick to show unity.  

They held hands for 30 seconds.

Kenenwick Police were bought in for traffic control.  

Organizers said 3,500 people showed up.

They said the group almost completed the entire chain but they fell short by only 100 feet because of a lack of time and a sudden police emergency involving a home robbery in Kennewick.
