At this year’s Relay for Life event, participants teamed up and camped out overnight to take turns walking around the La Cueva High School Track to try to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. A variety of fundraisers were held by team members over the months preceding the event to make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone’s life. The team raised more than $5,000 and is already looking forward to next year’s event.
