Walk the Walk at Relay for Life in Eugene, OR

???????????????????????????????It’s hard to describe how much work it takes to create an event as meaningful and successful as Relay for Life. With nearly 2,500 people signed up, and almost $400,000 raised, Relay for Life is an event to celebrate the perseverance of all who are affected by cancer. Hosted at Willamette High School, 134 teams, (including PacificSource) will walk together in support of cancer research, prevention, and a cure. Our own team has 28 dedicated members, many who hope to break personal records, and all are excited to take part in a worthy cause.

Keith Koch, one of the PacificSource team members, has vowed to walk no less than 20 miles at tonight’s event. He hopes to raise over $1,000 dollars by accepting donations and pledges per mile from the beginning of the event to the very end. Relay for Life is all about the people who participate. With a group of people this dedicated, it makes you feel like anything is possible.

Beginning at 6pm with a warm welcome, the entire event unfolds with light hearted themes, and re-energizing dance parties. The list includes, crazy hat laps, late night raves, zumba, and yoga for those still walking at 6am. There will be a special ceremony for the survivors participating, and once the sun goes down the Luminaria dedication will begin. If you’re interested in joining you can find out more on the Relay for Life website. Even if you aren’t able to join there are so many ways to take part in this great event. Be part of the thousands walking, jogging, standing, or donating in solidarity.

To get you inspired, here’s a look at what our team did last year:
