Relay for Life

This Friday I have the honor of kicking off Campbell County's Relay for Life at Newport High School.

Hey everyone. It's me Rob.

Last year Mareka Miller asked me to kick of the event. It's a good cause so I decided to do it again this year.

The relay for life benefits the American Cancer Society. More than 3,500,000 people take part in nearly 5,000 communities nationwide.

It is a fun filled overnight event that raises money and awareness to support the American Cancer Society's life saving mission.

At the relay teams celebrated the lives of people who have battled cancer and remember loved ones lost. The teams camp out at the school and members take turns walking or running around the track. The event is overnight because cancer never sleeps.
