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.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
