Relay for Life began in 1985 when Dr. Gordon Klatt walked and ran around the University of Puget Sound track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since its inception, millions of people have participated in Relay for Life nationally and internationally; they go to support family and friends who are battling cancer, celebrate those who have defeated cancer, or remember those who have passed.
The Eugene/Springfield Relay for Life started in 1992 and Women’s Care has been a proud supporter since that time. We are participating in Relay for Life as a part of the Northwest Specialty Clinic’s Cancer Care Alliance, an interdisciplinary group of physicians and clinics dedicated to creating a team approach to cancer care.
The 2010 Eugene/Springfield Relay for Life will begin at noon on Friday, August 6, at Thurston High School and last until noon Saturday. Please show your support and visit the Women’s Care physicians and employees at the Cancer Care Alliance tent, or help us reach our fundraising goal by participating in our raffles at any of our three Women’s Care locations.
