Volunteers in the fight against cancer brought the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life to Stoneham High School June 23.
The elderly and the young, patients and survivors, families and friends - hundreds of Stoneham residents came together for Stoneham's Relay for Life at Stoneham High School June 23. The ongoing relay, at first stifled by the unexpected torrents on rain, was forced into the gym for the beginning of its 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. marathon, but later made its way to the football field as relayers walked throughout the night to raise money for various cancer groups.
