Harlan's Homes 4 Hope Relay For Life Team

Like you, we LOVE our pets! We also love working with our community to raise money to eliminate cancer and to support those who are affected by cancer. PAWS 4 A CAUSE is a dog-friendly walk fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2024, beginning at Heritage Park/Capitol Lake, Olympia, WA. The event is not timed.


All proceeds raised by the Paws 4 A Cause dog walk fundraiser will benefit the American Cancer Society and the Animal Cancer Foundation – both organizations dedicated to finding a cure for cancer! Harlan's Relay for Life team is coordinating this event. Over the past 15 years, our team has raised over $260,000 to help eliminate cancer - we are one of the top fundraising teams in Thurston County. Join us in the fight!

We are coordinating with Event Advisor Lisa Parshley, Owner of Olympia Veterinary Specialists. With your help, we can beat our fundraising record from last year! Our goal this year is to raise $25,000! Interested in joining our fight against cancer? Join our team or volunteer to support the event!


All proceeds raised will equally benefit the Animal Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society – both organizations dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.

In loving memory 

Judy Johnson

In 2020, our team lost a cancer warrior: Judy Johnson. After battling brain cancer and surviving, she fought valiantly against lung cancer, bravely going through multiple forms of treatment and ultimately losing the fight in mid-October 2020. 

She joined our team a few years ago after attending a survivor luncheon with a team member. Once she joined, she was ALL IN, attending regular meetings, raising money, joining the survivor lap and supporting her teammates. 


She was a light of hope and an amazing friend and teammate. We dedicate our Relay For Life efforts to her.
