Block party: Relay for Life sets Saturday event in downtown Coos Bay
COOS BAY, Ore. -- Relay for Life is bringing a block party to Coos Bay this weekend, and the public is invited.
It's an event that’s usually held on a track, but this year organizers are bringing it into downtown Coos Bay.
Organizers say there will be fun activities to go along with the goal of raising money for cancer research.
And they say it's not just about raising money.
“It's also coming out, honoring and respecting survivors and their families, the caregivers for the ones who didn't make it, and it's showing support for those that are going through the process," says organizer Tammy Northcutt.
The Relay for Life block party is this Saturday from 2nd Street to 4th Street in downtown Coos Bay from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
