*More about Relay for Life**
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
Although there we had unusually cool and cloudy weather for July, we enjoyed the Battle Ground Parade! The showers held off just enough to allow the tops down on the convertibles! (This felt a little more like the Veteran’s Day Parade given our jackets and umbrellas!)
Thank you Mustang Club, Earl & Darlene for always taking care of Miss Clark County & Miss Clark County’s Outstanding Teen! You are the BEST!
