      Alger County holds 5th annual Relay For Life

      The 5th annual Alger County Relay For Life event kicks off Friday, July 11 at Mustang Stadium in Munising.

      For the past five years, community members throughout Alger County have gathered to walk laps in support of those suffering from cancer as well as their caregivers.

      This year over 300 participants will walk and volunteer for the event.

      The participants have already raised $26,704 in funds to go to the American Cancer Society.

      "As a small community there seems to be so many people affected by cancer, so the more money we raise and the more people we can help the better we'll all be" adds fundraising coordinator, Greg Prunik.

      This event ends Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.

      There will be a Survivor Ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday at Mustang Stadium.
