Cancer survivors, families walk in Relay for Life event in Sparta

Cancer survivors, caregivers honored at Relay For Life

The Brewster Relay joined Relays for Life in Mahopac and Patterson which are two of the more successful events nationwide. So many of our friends and family members have faced the challenges of dealing with this bad disease, Relay For Life empowers our community to fight back. As the survivors pass by, clapping and celebrating to the upbeat music, the memories of all those lost over the years surfaces, too.

The event began with an opening ceremony in which all participants gathered together.

Teams walk the track Friday evening at the 21st Annual Stutsman County Relay for Life.

Organizers moved this year's "Relay for Life" from in front of Old Main at Minot State University to inside the MSU Dome, due to weather.

As Springfield was starting a Relay for Life fundraiser Saturday morning, the Quaboag Valley Relay for Life was winding down at Belchertown High School athletic field. At 10 p.m., it was time to light luminaries. Team Acrish remembers the late rabbi of Temple Beth Eloheim, Sol Acrish, who lost his battle to the insidious disease a year ago. On into the night, teams continued to walk, until at 3 a.m. the closing ceremonies were held, calling to a close the 2017 event.
