The Relay for Life-Houston North Channel was a huge success last Friday, May 6 as more than $136,000 was raised to benefit cancer research. The North Channel community is joining together the fight against cancer.

According to North Channel Relay officials, the fundraising totals were still being tallied as of press time and were expected to significantly increase.

With more than 50 teams participating, the “May the Cure be with You” Star Wars themed event drew hundreds of walkers that participated in the event at the track of the North Shore High School Ninth Grade Campus.

The North Channel group also received an award from the American Cancer Society for raising more than $1 million toward cancer research for the past 13 years.
