Pine County Relay for Life Raises Over $4K
HOPE was the theme, Thursday, at the American Cancer Society of Pine County’s Relay for Life Celebration at the Pizza Pub in Pine City. The event raised over $4,000 according to Barb Anderson. Anderson, who coordinated Thursday’s Relay for Life, said it is encouraging to see the community come together in the fight against the deadly disease.
Anderson knows first hand the effects of cancer. Her daughter passed away from breast cancer 21 years ago this month. Anderson said the money raised helps not only the search for a cure, but support services for those battling the disease.
Over 100 luminaries lined the streets of Pine City in rememberance of those who lost their lives to cancer, and a special celebration was held to honor those who are battling or have overcome cancer.
