Relay for Life Moves Downtown

April 15, 2013

The Barnes County Relay for Life has a few changes this year, but Mary Dahl, community relationship manager for the American Cancer Society, said the annual fundraiser will continue the same traditions.

This year's event will move to a new downtown location and because of feedback from the community, will only run through midnight instead of all night long.

Schools around the area are closed today, and many events are postponed. Make sure you check first before going out.
