EDITOR'S NOTE: This report is part of the News Bulletin's ongoing series on cancer-research fundraisers. The newspaper is proud to support Relay For Life Crestview, which will take place April 25 at Shoal River Middle School.

CRESTVIEW — $6,800 is the goal to beat for Davidson Middle School's Relay For Life team.

The group collected that much from last year's Davidson Dash Run for a Cure, a 5K, 10K and kids' fun run in which residents can support cancer research and commemorate those with the disease. This year's event is Feb. 1.

"Just honoring these people (cancer survivors) is where my heart and passion is," race director Daniel Richards said. "We try to put an emphasis on them." 

Participants can write loved ones' names on a colorful piece of duct tape and wear it throughout the event, he said. 

The Davidson Dash will include door prizes, a silent auction, kids' fun run, inflatable bounce house and refreshments.
