Although that wasn't quite reached, the event still pulled in a little more than $56,000. So many of our friends and family members have faced the challenges of dealing with this bad disease, Relay For Life empowers our community to fight back.

She, in turn, presented the 2017 Relay for Life Community Engagement Award to Heartland Cancer Center, a place where many attending that evening event have spent some time.

Center Street in Merrill is the latest supporter of the popular Relay For Life of Merrill which annually raises over $60,000 for the fight against cancer.

The money raised supports groundbreaking cancer research, education and prevention programs, and critical services for people facing cancer.

Organizers moved this year's "Relay for Life" from in front of Old Main at Minot State University to inside the MSU Dome, due to weather.

Collins noted that a film crew was also on hand at this year's Relay for Life in Johnson City. "Another one of our awesome volunteers, Tina Aulabaugh of Brewster, a year ago organized a team and took part in the Patterson Relay". The ceremony is followed by the survivor lap, a lap for all cancer survivors and people now being affected by cancer. For more information visit or call Kris Revelle at 234-8853.
