Victory Field –Despite the overcast and rainy weather, over 200 participants and 30 teams marched in support of cancer research at this year’s Watertown/Newton/Waltham Relay for Life. Each year, the three communities come together to not only raise money to fight cancer, but also to celebrate cancer survivors and remember all those who have been lost to cancer through the years.
