ribbon1Hundreds 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.
