Olympia High School students will be participating in the McLean County Relay for Life on Friday, May 11 from 6 pm to 6 am Saturday. McLean County High Schools bring their Relay teams to the lock-in event which is being held at TrI Valley High School in Downs. The night includes games, food, karaoke, lip-sync contest, live bands, inflatables, Mr. Relay Contest, Survivor Celebration, the Luminaria Ceremony, and much more.
