Cancer needs to watch its back this winter because the North Central College wrestling team is planning a takedown.

For the past four years, the wrestling team has been involved with the College’s annual Relay for Life event each April. Relay for Life is an all night relay walk or run that raises money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). Many communities and schools participate in Relay for Life, honoring those that have lost their battle to the disease as well as those still fighting.
