Kevin Aul: Official birthday recipient at Relay for Life

July 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY – Some people groan about hitting the big 4-0, but Kevin Aul has scratched and clawed for 32 years of his life to hit it.

Aul – relaying with the Grace Gigglers of Grace United Methodist Church — was among those taking part in Punxsy's Relay for Life Saturday in Barclay Square.

The Relay for Life committee recognized Aul's 40th birthday with a park-wide sing-along of “Happy Birthday” and saluted him for his battle against cancer – which he has been waging for most of his life.
