In 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt spent 24 hours running and walking over 83 miles in Tacoma, Washington. During that night, he raised $27,000 to fight cancer.

-In 1986, 19 teams were involved in the first team relay event and raised $33,000.

-Relay For Life continued on and now many people help raise money for cancer research.
