Relay For Life is a community gathering where everyone can participate in the fight against cancer. Sixty-nine teams from companies, organizations and families converged on Century High School on Saturday, June 2 for Bismarck’s 20th annual Relay for Life. Teams walked around the track - members taking turns walking or running. They set up camps and displays on the school’s football field. The UTTC team of ten people and supporters had a teepee and the team raised $405. Because cancer never sleeps the event goes overnight, at least 12 hours long. Nationally, relay For Life brings together millions of people to raise money to help prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from the disease. While raising funds, they also raise awareness of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and patient support. Relay brings people together from all walks of life with the common goal of eliminating cancer. One in 3 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. RFL gives everyone the opportunity to fight back and to make a difference in the battle against cancer.
