Sanilac Relay for Life fundraiser this Saturday

As of eight days before Relay, the amount raised was $52,277.

The Adams County Relay For Life event will move indoors Friday due to the strong chance for showers and thunderstorms.

The team or family event will be an opportunity for knowledge exchange and to create awareness about cancer. It was created to represent a day in the life of a cancer survivor.

"Government also has the responsibility of providing not just treatment, but also care and support".

Belvidere - It is time for the annual Relay for Life of Boone and Winnebago Counties.

All proceeds from games and activities will be used order to fund research and cancer support materials through the American Cancer Society.

Turnout this year was down, partially due to the rainy weather. Survivors and caregivers were treated to a meal of hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, pretzels, and cupcakes.

The event drew people from all over the community, and survivors willing to share their story.

This year, the society hopes to raise $25 million across the country in relays.
