Yellowstone Relay for Life Begins Fundraising

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Dozens of people gathered at Rimrock Mall today to kick off fundraising for the 2014 Relay for Life.

After raising nearly $596,000 last year the Yellowstone County Relay for Life ranks 3rd in the nation for funds raised per capita for the American Cancer Society. This year organizers set a new goal of $650,000. This year's theme is "Rock around the Clock," and the relay is scheduled for July 11th and 12th at the Billings West High track.

"Unfortunately, it's really hard to find somebody who hasn't been affected by cancer. Everybody has it either in their family, in their friends. This is a way for everybody to get together, to raise money for that awareness, but also just to remember that we're in this together," coordinator Cathy Cullen said.
