Sturgis Relay for Life Event

The 2013 Sturgis Relay for Life event begins this afternoon, as cancer survivors and participants walking in memory of a cancer victim will assemble a Sturgis High School’s track.

The event starts at 3 p.m., with a number of special laps planned. At 6 o’clock, cancer survivors will walk a victory lap and a luminaire ceremony starts at 10, when participants reflect on those who lost their cancer battle.

Organizers said 21 teams have committed to the event and have raised more than $27,000 in pledges so far.

A pancake breakfast will be offered 7 to 9 a.m. Saturday. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.
