Lakeland Currents: Relay For Life
The American Cancer Society reports that there were 15.5 million Americans living with a history of cancer on Jan. 1, 2016. About 1.7 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed this year, in 2018. It’s hard to imagine anyone not knowing someone whose life has been impacted by cancer. Locally, here in Bemidji, survivors, caregivers, and community members come together to raise funds for cancer research and survivor support services through the Beltrami County Relay for Life. This year, though, there will be some changes for the popular event. Here to tell us about those changes, and to talk about the greater mission of Relay for Life, are Stephanie Moe, the event lead here in Beltrami County, and Cindy Swedberg, the marketing and entertainment lead.
