The live band could be heard across town. The fireworks erupted and ignited in the dark of night. A huge crowd of people marched around the track. Simply said, Greyhound Event Center was bustling with a cause Friday night: cancer.
The American Cancer Society’s annual event, Relay for Life, was held in Post Falls overnight Friday and well into Saturday. This memorable event started at six o’clock Friday evening and ran until noon Saturday. Volunteer groups, schools, clubs, families, and individuals gathered together to remember those who have passed on, commend those who have survived, and celebrate the cure the future promises.
Those participating were asked to raise funds by having others pledge money for the cause based on the number of laps the participants walked around the track. In addition, groups collectively raised funds with activities, sales, and concessions. The unbelievable monetary and social support for the American Cancer Society makes Relay for Life memorable and unique.
