Youths rally for Relay

In past years, Relay for Life never really hit home with the youth in the community, Mary LaPrairie said.

Something changed this year.

Youth participation has jumped to a total of 60 teams, up from 36 last year - now comprising roughly half of the 123 teams registered.

"There's finally been an 'a-ha' moment among the youth this year," said LaPrairie, chair of the Rely for Life of South Washington County Luminaria Committee. "It's like a dream come true."
