      Taking a stand against cancer

      Residents of one northeast Missouri community are coming together this Saturday evening to take a stand against cancer.

      At this hour, the annual Schuyler County Relay for Life is taking place at the Schuyler County R-1 School District in Queen City.

      Since early Saturday morning, people and teams have been setting up stands on the school track and selling to help raise funds such as bake sales, a silent auction and a bounce house for the kids.

      This is all of course to raise money for the American Cancer Society's cancer research.

      "That's the reason why we do this. Every year they come up with new things, the American Cancer Society, so that's the reason to keep doing it every year. They'll come out with new drugs and different services they offer for everyone to take advantage of," said Committee Member Lisa Tarr. This is the second year in a row the event was held outdoors. There was also a car show, poker run, luminary service and survivor walk.

      There is still time to go and enjoy the events, the Schuyler County Relay for Life will still go on until midnight.
