Walking in a circle repeatedly for hours might not be very enjoyable for someone who’s all by themselves. However, when you’re among friends, family and other fellow community members, the physical exertion is lessened by both the camaraderie and the knowledge the laps are helping to change lives. The 2012 Craig Relay for Life will take place Friday and Saturday at the Moffat County High School track, 900 Finley Lane. The two-day event is a celebration of life, honoring those who have survived cancer, paying tribute to those who have passed away from the disease and joining together to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Sarah Blakeslee, Relay community relations manager, said more than 170 local participants from 16 teams are planning to attend after spending months raising money through various benefits.
