Relay for Life hosted on Front Lawn

Relay for Life hosted on Front Lawn

Every luminary bag at Relay for Life represents a loved one, culminating in a lovely ceremony that is a moment of reflection.

Luminarias for the Gage County Relay for Life are still available for a $10 donation, and can be obtained from any Relay registered walker.

Lynn Husted, who is coordinating the Relay For Life for Lamar County, said the Sumrall High Football Field will be full.

The rally is conducted each year in conjunction with the American Cancer Society in an effort to celebrate cancer survivors and mourn people who have died of cancer. "I really enjoyed all the mission moments throughout the night that brought us back to why we were there".




"As the American Cancer Society we are so grateful for everything Seton Hall Community puts into Relay for Life", Smith said in an email interview.

Mackey added that after beating the goal they set for themselves for last year's relay, the team was motivated to reach the one-million mark. "We have been working toward this goal since mid-September so it was an awesome moment on Friday with the confetti and in sharing it with leaders who have worked so hard and are so invested in one day finding a cure". The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service. After several tests and a biopsy, she was told she had cancer.

Kaiser added that the hair from the hair-cutting ceremony is being donated to a different group from previous years working with Pantene; it will be going to one based in Long Island, which makes wigs for children with cancer.

The event will end with the luminary ceremony, which allows those who wish to honor their loved ones or friends who have battled cancer or continue that battle.
