Cancer affects one in two males and one in three females. Many in the area are trying to do something about this by holding Relay for Life programs in each of the area counties. Others hold programs such as Coaches versus Cancer events.
One such event will take place in Britt tonight as the great rivalry between the Forest City Indians and the West Hancock Eagles will meet in a boys and girls basketball game. The girls game begins at 6:15pm and the boys are slated to begin at 7:30pm. Both games can be heard on B-103fm tonight.
American Cancer Society Regional Director Steve Lovick explained that tonight will have a number of activities which are all tied into the fund raising efforts to fight cancer.
