2011 Kaw Valley Relay For Life
Before the rain began falling in earnest Friday, a large crowd turned out for the Ninth Annual Kaw Valley Relay For Life at the Bonner Springs High School track. Even before the event began at 7 p.m., the relay met its goal of raising enough money to make $1 million raised cumulatively in its nine-year history.
The survivors round the last bend of the track to kick off the event.
