This year's relay planning com- mittee has set a goal of registering at least 15 teams to walk the track dur- ing the August 10-11 event, sched- uled at the Lovell High School track in Lovell. Traditionally, teams are com- prised of friends, family members, cancer survivors, students, co-work- ers and active seniors. "Last year we had a terrific vari- ety of teams participating in the Re- lay," said Cheri Mickelson, chair of the Big Horn County Relay for Life. "And even though we had teams rep- resenting almost every segment of Big Horn County, we know we've only scratched the surface of those who would like to get involved. They just need to be asked." In the coming weeks, commit- tee volunteers will be contacting area businesses and organizations, offer- ing them information on how they can form a team. Mickelson explained that donations raised by the teams are used by the American Cancer Society to continue its funding of cancer re- search and its many educational and patient service programs. This year, the Society will invest more than $120 million in cancer research nationwide. Since its research grant program be- gan in 1946, the Society has helped fund the work of 46 Nobel Prize win- ning cancer researchers. Mickelson explains that once a team is registered, the members go out into their communities to secure donations for their efforts. Then, the afternoon of the event, they all meet at the track and set up their camp- sites. This year's Big Horn County Relay teams will join together for the opening ceremony at 7 p.m., followed by the Cancer Survivors Lap. After the ceremonies, all teams will be asked to have one member walking the track throughout the course of the event. When they aren't walking, team members are encour- aged to visit other campsites, partici- pate in the many games and activities available and to enjoy the entertain- ment and food. This year's relay is slated to wrap up with a closing ceremony at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning. To register a team for this year's relay, or to learn more about the event, contact Cheri Mickelson at 272-0877 or 548-2718.
