Walking for hope and help

"The High Life" was the team of the extended Miller family who walked to honor and remember Jeff Miller whose favorite brew was Miller High Life. The 22nd annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life was last Friday, July 14, at Sturges Park.

 

Gary Miller presented the opening speech, telling the teams of walkers, "What we are doing is great because resources are always needed in the fight against cancer."

 

Survivors and caregivers walked the first lap of the Relay for Life, cheered on by the Annandale Cheerleaders on the left.

 

After the luminaria were lit, participants in the Northern Wright County Relay for Life walked a lap in silence to remember those who have lit up their lives.

 

As the sun set over Buffalo Lake, the luminarias were lit to honor and remember those who did not survive cancer. The track was lit up to spread the hope of finding cures for all cancer.

 

The Breast Avengers have been participating in the Relay for Life for the past four years. Above are four members of this year's team, from left, Kathy Green, Chuck Green, Noah Butler, and Debi Warpula. The team was walking in memory of Marie Butler, Noah's mother, who died from cancer on March 21, 2017.

 

Beverly's Hillbillies have been part of the Relay for Life for the past twelve years. In 2006, Beverly Neuman walked the survivor lap, but died two months later from cancer. Since then, the team has raised more than $75,000 for the American Cancer Society.
