Tonight at Holt High School Relay for Life takes over the football field as the Cancer fundraiser begins.

Tents will be up, for the exhausted walkers, their will be the lighting of the luminaries (which is such a beautiful sight) for Cancer survivors, those still dealing with Cancer, and the brave who fought the battle and lost.

Tonight into tomorrow's fundraiser is for the American Cancer Society, which means all money raised tonight goes to them to continue cancer research and find a cure.

For such a serious fundraiser, I love the fact that it is fun and silly all night long, with so many in our community doing whatever they can to stop cancer and bring that disease to it’s knees.

Growing up, cancer was not something many people got diagnosed with.   Now it seems like Cancer is hitting more people that we love and cherish.

Have a great time and do what you can to help fund more research for the Cancer Society, lets stop this nasty disease.  Join us at Holt HIgh School for the fun Relay for LIfe.
