Lake Stevens Journal April 13, 2011 PURPLE The Awesome Olsens sold the gratitude journals and allowed purchasers to decorate them. Eleven-year—old Gracie Olsen is one of dozens of kids who are dedicated to fighting cancer. “I wanted to have a team because I thought it would be fun. I can’t wait to stay up all night at Relay for Life,” she said. Jennifer Fortney and her son were manning the Krispy Kreme doughnut booth. Fortney and Demary started par— ticipating in Relay for Life years ago when they were asked to be chaperones for their kids. “My mom is a breast cancer survivor and my sister-in- law just got diagnosed," Fortney explained. These are just two of her family members who have suffered from the disease. “Cancer is a huge thing in my family It’s a cause we can stand by." The day brought in close to $3,000 for Relay for Life Lake Stevens whose goal is to raise over $200,000. Now, the Re- lay committee will continue to encourage teams to keep fundraising and work outthe logistics for the big event on May 14 and 15. “We are 20 percent of the way to our goal at $50,000 on our way to $225,000," Demary said. “The-Entertainment committee is working hard on putting together amaz— ing entertainment. We have several bands coming to play live, the Seattle Cossacks motorcycle stunt and drill team will be doing two awesome shows. We have lots of surprises up our sleeves—the community doesn’t want to miss it. Even if you are not on a team you can come out and see what we are doing, enjoy the music and purchase items for sale to help us fight back.” Having fun while raising awareness is a priority but 3.: I ensuring that the number of people who are diagnosed ' goes down and knowing that those suffering from cancer ,_-, ‘ 1 . will have a greater opportunity to live longer is what Relay for Life is all about. Demary has been making this her , '1 mission. “One in three people will get cancer—that is a fact. We ‘ F I Celebrate our Survivors,” she said. “If you have heard the words ‘You have Cancer’ you are not alone, we relay for you our survivors, we want to honor you, you are a survivor from the very minute the doctors tell you.” “We Remember: We relay.for all of those we have lost," she adds. “We Fight Back so that future gen— erations never have to hear ‘You have cancer.” Relay for Life Lake Stevens will take place at Lake Ste- vens High Schoolon Saturday, May 14 at 10 am. to Sun- day, May 15 at 10 am.
