American Cancer Society Relay for Life Raise $65,267.76 for the Fight Against Cancer

Blaine County’s annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life raised approximately 65,267.76 for cancer research and patient services. This year’s Blaine County Relay For Life was able to be held at Okeene’s football field Friday night after the weather cleared and provided a wonderful evening

. Due our event being held during Fall Break this year, we had lots of kids dressed in costumes enjoying the games and treats provided by the Relay teams. The event was started off with a dinner honoring all of the Blaine County cancer survivors. Each survivor received a T-shirt and a bag of gifts provided through donations from team members and county businesses. The Relay began at 7:00 p.m., when the cancer survivors kicked off the event by walking the first lap and releasing white and purple balloons.
