WESTERN NEW YORK -- Dozens of people laced up their sneakers across Western New York on Saturday to help kick cancer to the curb and raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
Time Warner Cable News reporter Antoinette Delbel joined the 6th annual Relay for Life event at Lancaster High School today. The event is put on entirely by students. Cancer survivors take first lap around the track. Bonnie Winter and Laura Holtyn, both 4-year breast cancer survivors, took part in the survivor lap. Nine-year breast cancer survivor Denise Kiblin and Rebecca Poremba took a lunch break. Poremba was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago and is still fighting the disease.
Time Warner Cable News sports reporter Greg Vorse took part in the Cattaraugus Country Relay for Life. All the survivors gathered together for a photo op. They took a "survivors lap" before friends and supporters joined in. The Ellicottville Central School's Ellicottville Teacher Association wore camouflage in memory of Dale Golley, who lost his battle this past year.
And Time Warner Cable News Casey Bortnick was at the Perry Relay for Life. He sent back this picture of 12-year-old Amber Treadwell. She organized Team Joey for her neighbor, who is battling several forms of cancer. She raised more than $15,000 for the American Cancer Society.
