Local Boy Scouts Michael Biggins and Daniel Whipple raised money for the American Cancer Society's fund raiser Relay for Life.

The Relay for Life is a 24-hour event held last July 21st in Missoula at the Dornblaser track. Teams get together to raise money for the fight against cancer. The teams must have at least one member of their team walking on the track for the complete 24 hours.

Biggins and Whipple were members of Community Medical Center's team. The boys raised over $300 for the Cancer Society. They walked on the track for a little over 18 hours and ended up walking a distance of 30 miles.
