The Ravalli County Relay for Life of the American Cancer Society is Friday evening, July 10 ... and it's shorter this year.

The annual fund-raiser will be in the parking lot in front of the First Interstate Event Center at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds, with some of the activities also inside the event center.

The relay will start at 6 p.m. and will wrap up six hours later at midnight, in a newly authorized shorter event. The teams will walk until midnight, and the luminaria display along the walking track will be at 10:30 p.m.
