Battle Ground — More than 370 participants walked the track at Battle Ground High School on Aug. 15 as part of the 10th annual Relay For Life North Clark County. The event, which started at 10 a.m. and went until 10 a.m. the following day, raised more than $79,000 for the American Cancer Society. The relay kicked off with a survivor's lap, featuring 100 cancer survivors walking one lap on the track. A committee of about 40 people planned the event throughout the last year.
