Pauline Ibia needed to visit political candidates Saturday night, but delayed her visits until she got in a couple of laps in the Survivors’ Walk at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life North Shore, held at the Bryan J. Baptiste Sports Complex in Kapaa.

“I lost two brothers to cancer,” Ibia said. “I had to walk at least a couple of laps before going to visit candidates.”

Relay For Life is a grassroots, community-based team fundraising event that honors cancer survivors, their caregivers, and remembers those who lost their fight against cancer.

Patti Ragasa Ornellas, the Kauai American Cancer Society coordinator, said the event unfolded with 25 teams coming up with more than $24,000 toward the Relay’s goal of $50,000.
