Relay For Life of Mukilteo, held July 12-13 at Kamiak High School, has so far raised more than $21,000 for the American Cancer Society. This was the second year that Mukilteo has held its own Relay For Life.

Hundreds of volunteers from 29 teams walked the track during the 18-hour event, and more than 50 cancer survivors participated in ceremonies.

It's still possible to donate online at www.relayforlife.org/mukilteowa. Monies raised support research, advocacy, education and services for cancer patients.
