Relay for Life celebrates and remembers

"Everyone should come on out to learn about how to help the American Cancer Society save more lives from cancer", said event lead Carolyn Lockett.

It gives those who are fighting cancer, those who have fought - and won the battle for today - as well as those who have taken care of someone who has had cancer or those who have loved someone who lost the battle a place to gather and feel supported behind a united cause - beating cancer for good. The district set a fundraising goal of $15,000 for its first Relay for Life, and was close to reaching it as of Thursday afternoon, organizer and teacher Tracy Watson said.

In July, as part of Relay for Life Kilkenny, the Great Kilkenny Ponytail Cut will be held.

The Chelan Douglas County Relay For Life starts Friday night at Eastmont High School track.

Following this, the survivors will stay downtown at the square for a guest speaker - Dr. Brad Behnke, professor of exercise physiology at Kansas State University, at 6:45 p.m.

"There is so much survivorship present, if you are just beginning your diagnosis and you come to our opening ceremonies and see the years of survivorship there, it really is unbelievable", she says.

Relay for Life of Sanilac County, an annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, is Saturday, June 2 at Woodard Football Field, 395 S. Sandusky Road, Sandusky.
