Relay for Life walks the walk in annual fundraiser

STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater turned out Friday night to support the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life fundraiser.

Organizers expected 26 teams with up to 450 members and hoped to raise $127,000.

Angela Weiser has participated in Relay for Life as part of Team Claire for 13 years.

It’s a team that started as a way to support the family of a 3-year-old member of her daughter’s play group. Weiser said she also does it in memory of family members who had various types of cancer.

Organizers took a chance when the event moved outdoors to Pioneer Stadium this year.

Organizers were expected to shut the festivities down around midnight as the threat of rain increased.
