Hazelwood Central High School hosted its 14th American Cancer Society’s (ACS) Relay for Life on Friday, Aug. 3 from 6 to midnight this year. The event was celebrated by about 223 participants, with more than 50 of those being cancer survivors. All proceeds went to the ACS for research, testing and education about this devastating disease.
