Wednesday January 28th was the first of two cancer awareness nights at Ellsworth High School, the 2nd night tonight, January 28th when the Ellsworth Eagles play the Orono Red Riots.

Ellsworth High School student's Grace High and Rachel Bunker came up and spoke with me at halftime of the boy's 40-38 victory over Orono and they explained to me why the Ellsworth Student Council was promoting this event, selling T-Shirts and involved in Relay for Life. As I was talking with Grace, she told me that her grandfather was Bruce Lindbergh, the former principal of Ellsworth High School who passed away last year from lung cancer. She started tearing up, and I gave her a giant hug when we were done with the interview. But you see, that's the point, everyone knows someone affected by cancer, and why we have to all work together to find a cure for this terrible disease!

Have a look at the video, here are some of the sights and sounds from January 27th's game. I hope you can come out and support the cause tonight! If not, please be sure to support the Relay For Life and the Ellsworth High School's team this spring!
