Despite the inclement weather, congratulations to the Norwin XC Relay for Life team that raised $1350 and ran 340 laps or 85 miles for cancer at the 2015 Relay for Life. Thanks to everyone who participated and raised money for the great cause--especially the Soltez, Whalen, and Youngbauer families, and Coach Swenson for helping set up and make the event a success. Great job and let's beat the results next year in our fight to beat cancer.
