WHITEHALL – It was a family affair at the kickoff of the 2013 Relay for Life of White Lake last Tuesday evening.

The White Lake event is a part of the American Cancer Society’s signature team fundraiser and survivor celebration held around a 24-hour community walk. The 24-hour event will be held May 18-19 at the Montague E.G. Township Athletic Complex next to Montague High School, the fundraiser portion is nearly a year-around function.
And, it has been going on in the White Lake Area for 20 years.
