'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

WHEN AND WHERE?

The Pittsburgh East Relay will take place from 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 13, to 10 a.m. on Sunday at Yuhas-McGinley Stadium, located at 20 Valmartin Drive.

WHO'S INVOLVED?

More than 100 walkers from 14 teams are currently registered to participate in the relay. So far, those teams have raised more than $27,400, which will support the American Cancer Society.

SPECIAL EVENTS

A cancer survivors' dinner will take place Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Fralic Athletic Center next to the stadium, followed by a presentation from motivational speaker and founder of the TV program “Sportsweek” Tom McGough, who is a cancer survivor.

There will also be a “Luminaria Ceremony” held at 9 p.m. on July 13 to honor, support and celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer.

ENTERTAINMENT

In addition to a DJ, who will help keep the music going, live bands also will be featured on Saturday to help keep walkers upbeat.

Acoustic Diversion will perform at noon; country-rock band On the Horizon will take the stage at 4 p.m.; the Kiski Valley Community Band will play a selection of marches, Broadway tunes, patriotic music and songs by American composers at 7:45 p.m.; and Do You Like Chocolate Cake?, a trio of Duquesne University students, will perform at 10 p.m.

NOT WALKING? NOT A PROBLEM!

Although the walk is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, the public is invited to enjoy the music, fun and ceremonies which will take place.
