24-Hour stretch

Howard Chow, of the Awesome Possum team, stretches after completing the first lap, while another runner heads out at the 35th annual Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay at Swangard Stadium on Saturday. Money raised by the relay is used to help send children and young adults with disabilities to summer camp. Since the relay began in 1979, more than $33 million has been raised to send over 28,000 kids to Easter Seals camps. - MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER
