Deer hunting season may be over, but those whose mission it is to stop cancer in its tracks are still "Hunting for a Cure." Dawson County Relay for Life kicked off its 2016 fundraising initiative Jan. 19 at Cornerstone Church, where volunteers wearing camouflage declared they would unite as a community to honor survivors, raise awareness of reducing cancer risks and collect funds to help the American Cancer Society. "We are building back Relay in Dawson County, and we're just hoping to get more people involved and get more survivors and caregivers involved so we can recognize them, as well," said American Cancer Society representative Brooke VanBuskirk.
