Over 20 teams raised over $36,000 for the American Cancer Society in the 2013 Ravalli County Relay for Life last weekend.

The walkers circled the Corvallis Event Center track from 6 p.m. Friday June 28 to Saturday morning at 8 a.m. The event was highlighted by sports mascots Monte from the UM Grizzlies, Slash from the Missoula Maulers, Ollie from the Missoula Osprey and Smokey Bear from the Bitterroot National Forest.

Heat was a factor early in the relay, but organizers had plenty of water available and EMTs were available for those who got caught by the high temperatures. The Corvallis Volunteer Fire Department also had water spraying for the younger generation.
