On Friday night, for the ninth year in a row, hundreds of people will come together to help stamp out cancer.
The American Cancer Society’s annual local fundraiser, the Relay for Life of Oswego/Montgomery, steps off at 6 p.m. on Friday at . Participants will walk in shifts around the OHS track, passing the baton throughout the night, until the closing ceremonies at 5:30 a.m. Saturday.
Last year’s Relay brought out 500 participants in 56 teams, and raised more than $96,500, according to Robert Blodgett, publicity chair of the local Relay. And all of the money raised goes to help cancer patients in Oswego and Montgomery, Blodgett said.
