Relay for Life

Relay for LifeOn July 16th and 17th from Noon to Noon, the Cat Pack will be representing south Tillamook County in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life at Tillamook High School. Our team members are: Kelly Whitney-Babcock (Team Captain), Lori Chitwood, Megan Tucker, William Tucker, Justin Reddekopp, Kerrin Swanson, Lacey Woods, Hillary Heathershaw, and Jen Cabral.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a life-changing event that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, our team will camp out at Tillamook High School, and take turns walking or running around the track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

In addition to helping people celebrate, remember, and fight back, Relay For Life® also helps raise much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.

Every donation really does make a difference. I know that times are tighter than normal for many of us, but any amount you can give truly can help save lives.

Thanks to your support, the American Cancer Society can:

  • Help people stay well by helping them take steps to prevent cancer or detect it early, when it’s most treatable
  • Help people get well by being in their corner around the clock to guide them through every step of their cancer experience
  • Find cures by funding groundbreaking research that helps us understand cancer’s causes, determine how best to prevent it, and discover new ways to cure it
  • Fight back by working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight
  • Each of us has our own reasons for caring about the fight against cancer … whatever your reasons, we hope you’ll choose to make a difference by making a donation online to support our efforts or by joining in the fun at the Relay. Together we can save lives.
