Team members can sign up and get all the information needed to ensure a successful relay event at the open house meeting. The theme chosen for relays across the nation is “iRelay.”

“This is a great way to learn about relay,” said event co-chair Rhonda Cohen. “This will be a celebration of some of the special people in our community who are helping to make a difference. If you have ever been interested in participating in Relay come and find out about it. Join us in fighting against cancer.”

The relay will take place at the Lake Oswego High School track beginning July 13 at noon and finishing July 14 at 9 a.m.
