Gaylord Kicks off 24-hour Walk for Cancer

It takes only 24 hours.

Many in Gaylord came out this weekend to support those living with terminal illnesses.

Gaylord’s Relay for Life kicked off this morning at the Otsego County Fairgrounds.

Twenty-three teams signed up to complete the 24-hour walk honoring cancer victims and survivors.

All benefits go to the American Cancer Society.

There was also a survivor lunch and a princess party.

For one two-time breast cancer survivor, it’s encouraging to mingle with others who have lived through cancer.

“It’s amazing with the bad weather we’re having, but they’ve been you know there’s a lot of people out there soaking wet. You know, we’re making it,” said two-time breast cancer survivor Denise Rahn.

The relay ends tomorrow at 10 a.m.
