Walking For A Cause

July 26, 2013, 7:49 AM by Kellee Azar

Walking For A Cause
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A step across the finish line is a step closer to curing cancer for 15 year cancer survivor Mickey Metcalf.

Every time she sets foot on the Relay for Life track, she remembers her fight and those who have been lost.

"There are very few people who haven't been touched by this disease and it’s not a fun disease," Metcalf said.

Metcalf lost her mother, her sister and her aunt to cancer. But before her mother's death, Metcalf's mom insisted the family needed to join Relay for Life.

"The first time I did it, my mom made us go out and walk the whole entire time. She wouldn't let us sit down. By 7 a.m. we were ready to sleep," Metcalf said.

Now a decade later, with memories of her lost loved ones with her, Metcalf is one of the top fundraisers for the Relay.

"I set a goal and I fight like heck to go accomplish it," Metcalf said.

She says she fights not for the money, but for those fighting cancer.

"I would love to have a day when we don't have to have this, when we don't have to walk the track or stay up all night, because then we would have a cure for cancer," Metcalf said.

But until that happens, Metcalf will keep walking.

"We come back out and we start all over again, and we do it until we don't have to anymore," Metcalf said.

The Relay for Life event is at O'Gorman High School at 6 p.m. on Friday. The walk will last until 6 a.m. If you still want to join in on the walk or donate, find out more information on the Relay for Life's website.
