Ravalli County Relay For Life Meets Goals
The 2012 Ravalli County Relay for Life raised money, had more participants this year and added more activities through the night.
The fundraiser for the American Cancer Society was held at the Corvallis Event Center track, its home for the last few years.
The teams were presented onto the track with their themes at about 6pm Friday and began walking (and some were running) through Friday night until Saturday morning.
Events this year included limbo, Bingo, bubble gum contest, pajama style show, a dance competition and the most popular – Zumba exercise at midnight. Special guest Monte, the UM Grizzly mascot, helped start the walk and was a favorite with the kids.
Bleary-eyed, but having reached this year’s goal, the teams took down their tents early Saturday and went home to grab some needed sleep.
