Walking for a cure

On June 24, community members gathered in Colville’s Yep Kanum Park to participate in this year’s Relay For Life. The event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, is part of the world's largest fundraiser to end cancer. Nine teams signed up this year: Delta Dental of Washington, Bandaids, Seekers in Sneakers, Boise Cure Crusaders, Washington Federal, Team Radon, Bri’s Tata Tumornators, Super One Foods and Team Hewescraft. Despite a downpour earlier in the day, groups of people came to check out the food, entertainment and, of course, to walk and raise money for the cause.
