Guess what time it is? If that guess were itâ€™s time for the annual Stevens County Relay for Life, it would be correct. The fundraiser is scheduled to start tonight, June 24 and end Saturday, June 25 at the Colville High School track. All proceeds benefit cancer research through the American Cancer Society.
According to SCRFL Event Chair Nikole Morrison, there are 38 teams currently registered to participate in this yearâ€™s Relay.
