Relay for Life raises money for cancer research in Greenfield

Franklin County

The Town of Greenfield held a cancer fundraiser Friday evening.

Hundreds gathered for the 23rd annual Relay for Life of Franklin County at the Franklin County Fairgrounds. Survivors and caregivers walked the track as they were cheered on by crowds.

Event organizer Christopher Luipold told 22News why he looks forward to the Relay each year.

“For me, it’s really important to be here,” Luipold told 22News. “I have a lot of family members who have had cancer, survived cancer, lost their lives to cancer along with a lot of personal friends. To me, this is the one thing that I look forward to every year.”

22News reporter Mike Masciadrelli was Friday night’s emcee.
