9&10 News Helping Hands and Farm Bureau Insurance, Michigan's Insurance Company, are happy to support numerous Relay for Life events taking place the summer of 2012. Relay for Life is a 24-hour team fundraising event held to benefit the American Cancer Society. Individuals from throughout Northern Michigan join together to battle cancer in the form of teams. Team members then take turns walking, running, or jogging around a local track for 24 hours.
Relay for Life is also a celebration honoring and remembering those who have battled cancer. All proceeds from this event stay in Michigan and are used for cancer treatment, prevention, and patient services.
