FIGHTING BACK: Sophomores Christian Cox (left) and Brady Williams partake in the piggyback lap during Relay for Life on Saturday. Cox and Williams were walking as part of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity’s team. Now in its 25th year, the annual relay celebrates and remembers those who have battled cancer while raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life at UM lasted 12 hours and raised about $51,000. The day was spent with participants walking around Stanford Circle, sometimes in creative styles like walking backward, with the first laps led by survivors and their caregivers. Activities, including the dating/best friend game and an easter egg hunt, were offered between laps.
