Are you a survivor?

Are you a cancer survivor? Survivors can register online for the Survivor’s Lap prior to this year’s Grays Harbor Relay For Life and East County Relay by going to relayforlifeofgraysharbor.org or relayforlifeofeastgraysharbor.org, clicking on “join” and filling out the form. Or they can call 1-800-227-2345 and do it over the phone. This allows them to not have to stand in line at Relay to register and get their free T-shirt and 2015 survivor medal.
