Kane Relay Parade
These cancer survivors sit on their float during Kane's Relay for Life parade Thursday. In the following pictures, relay teams and others get ready to march in the parade.
Moments before the largest parade to hit Kane in years, teams gathered, survivors mounted a float decorated in the colors of cancer, Miss Relay contestants, Kane's Prince and Princess, and other dignitaries got in their convertibles, fire trucks, motocylists, ice cream and winery trucks fell in line to launch the 8th annual Kane Area Relay. The survivor and luminary ceremonies and kickoff are Friday night at the Kane Area High School Track. 18 teams are participating this year. The 24 hour relay event is a celebration after a year of fundraising which ends Saturday morning. This year's fundraising goal for Kane is $40K. Barry and Shirley Morgan of Kane planned the well received parade. They also championed community wide fundraising efforts raising well over $5K for the overall Kane Area Relay. They conducted many fundraising events for their own teams.

The Relay is at Kane Area High School. Go support these people!
