Relay for Life Raises $15,780 to Battle Cancer
The 13th Annual Scotland County Relay for Life helped raise more than $15,000 for the American Cancer Society's battle against cancer.
A total of 49 cancer survivors joined forces to make the first circuit around the square as the traditional Survivor's Lap kicked off the night-long relay around the track.
More than 400 luminaries were lit in memory of cancer victims, providing a somber reflection on why the Relays are so important.
Spokesperson Stephen E. Schroeder, praised the community support for the event and throughout the fundraising efforts of the teams to help make the 2013 Relay a success.
"We look forward to the 2014 Relay for Life, which will start at 6:30 pm on June the 6th and last until 1:00 a.m. on the 7th," Said Schroeder.
