Participants battled the rain and wind to raise money for cancer research
More than 1,200 people battled the wind and rain to raise money for the 2012 Relay for Life of Kent State University this weekend. According to the group's website, 1,283 people and 69 teams raised a total of $61,526 for the Kent State effort. The fundraising culminated with a 24-hour walk around the track at Kent State on Saturday. The Relay for Life is an effort of the American Cancer Society that "helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease," according to the organization.
