Over 450 people attended the Aitkin County Relay for Life American Cancer Society event held at the county fairgrounds on July 19.

Sue Brekke-Bensonore reported more than $40,000 in donations were raised to fight cancer, not including the silent auction items. There were 2,179 decorated luminaria lit along the paths and 55 cancer survivor walkers were present, in addition to many teams.
