SARTELL - The American Cancer Society held a Relay For Life event last night at Bernick's Arena. The event started at 6:00 p.m. Friday night and went until 6:00 a.m. this morning.

Many came out to walk, support, honor loved ones they lost, and help raise cancer awareness.

Tents were set up on the field so the supporters could stay all night long, and when the weather got to cold an indoor track was made inside the Arena.

Throughout the night entertainment was provided for the people who were there, as well as team camps with items for sale and a silent auction. All the money that was raised will go to cancer research.
