Holt’s Relay for Life is looking for people to participate in this annual cancer fundraiser June 21-22 at Holt High School. Relay for Life celebrates survivors, remembers those who have lost their battle and raises funds to stop a disease that continues to take far too many lives. The relay is a team event that lasts 24 hours. Because cancer never sleeps, it is required for at least one team member to be walking on the track at all times. Deaths due to Cancer | Infographics
