The annual Relay for Life, which raises funds for the American Cancer Society, was held this weekend at the CRISTA campus in Shoreline, 19303 Fremont Ave N.

The 24 hour event was held at Martin Stadium at Kings High School on the campus. Teams raised money, then walked a lap or two around the track. There were half a dozen theme laps - pajama, favorite sports team, funny hats.

Activities started at 11am on Saturday and went through the day, ending with bowling with coconuts in the evening. A silent auction was held all Saturday.

There were lines of food trucks, and a stage with live music all day. Family friendly movies ran all night Saturday. Breakfast was served on Sunday by the Shoreline Rotary.

Special events throughout honored and supported survivors and their caregivers. The first lap on Saturday morning was for survivors and caregivers.

After dark on Saturday, the luminaria were lit and placed around the track. Each one had the name of someone who had fought cancer.
