On Friday night, many people came out to the McClellan Soccer Fields for the 2013 Calhoun County Relay For Life. 126 teams were registered in this year’s Relay For Life. And the total fundraising amount totaled at over $347,000! All of the money raised from this event supports cancer research and programs to help those battling the disease. This year is the 100th anniversary of the American Cancer Society. Today, two out of three people are surviving cancer and more than 400 people a day in the U.S. are celebrating birthdays that would otherwise be lost to cancer. That’s great progress!
Relay for Life is all about celebrating more birthdays! In the video and photos below, you will see the Survivors Lap, caregiver and team laps, photos from Cheaha Cheer and Tumble and the Alabama State Trooper Helicopter, photos of many of the tents and booths, the Luminaria Ceremony with the lighting of lanterns, a performance from More Than This, and much more!
