Relay For Life Hitting the Streets June 16-17

In most races, the winner reaps the biggest reward. The Relay for Life benefits everyone, as its participants race to help find a cure for cancer while raising money to help victims of the disease.

The Sixth Annual Scotland County Relay for Life will be held Friday evening on the Memphis Square.

Cancer survivors will receive a free t-shirt and will march together in the first lap. A survivors reception will be held at the VFW from 4:00 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. Refreshments and cake will be provided by Bank of Kirksville and Erin Miller of Sweet Treasures.

Laci and Opal Blaine will carry the banner and lead their fellow cancer survivors on the initial lap around the courthouse. From that point on, each team participating in the relay will have at least one member on the track, at all times, completing laps for the next 12 hours.

While the race itself draws plenty of participants, it is the food and entertainment that helps fill the city square with willing donors. The teams host food booths and games and other fundraising efforts. Spectators also are entertained by a live DJ. Chuck Kigar is providing the service this year. Musical performers will include the Heritage Band and numerous other local acts.

The first Relay for Life in 2001 raised $15,000 in Scotland County. That figure has grown to more than $30,000 in recent relays.

The touching luminary ceremony brings light to how many lives have been touched by cancer. Candles are placed around the square in memory of cancer victims and family members or loved ones stricken by cancer. The hundreds of candles light up the square and enlighten the spectators on the enormous impact of the disease.
