Relay For Life The Dalles Area has noticed a decreased attendance and participation the last 4 years, and it isn’t unique to our area alone. Relays nationwide have also noticed similar situations, mainly due to a tight, unstable economy. People are saving their pennies, and that often leaves fund raisers, charities and community events like Relay For Life in the background.
In 2017, the Relay For Life groups in our area (Hood River and The Dalles) are undergoing a major change….they are merging to create a stronger force. The Relay on August 5th will be held in downtown The Dalles, Oregon at the The Dalles Civic Auditorium on E. 4th St. Survivor Walk and Luncheon, the Relay Marketplace, Silent Auction, Paint For Relay, Live Music and more are just a few of the events scheduled to take place. The day of fun and fight will be capped off with our traditional Luminaria Walk at 10PM.
We hope you can join us this Saturday, August 5th, starting at 9AM!
