Burnett County Gets Ready to Relay for Life
Hundreds are expected to come out to support the fight against cancer this weekend in Webster, WI. The Burnett County Relay for Life kicks off Friday afternoon. The goal is to raise $52,000 for cancer research, says relay coordinator Michele Gullickson Moore. She says expectations are lower than last year because of the state of the economy, but adds that the Burnett County community always finds a way of stepping up.
Gullickson Moore expects between 200 and 250 people to attend Relay for Life. Anyone who is not able to attend can donate to cancer.org.
