The American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life event is Friday and Saturday this week. It seems every year that at some point during the 12 hour event, just about everyone in Valdosta is there to participate. If you've missed it somehow, it's a very well planned and very touching event, particularly for cancer survivors and those who have lost their loved ones to the disease. The premise of the relay is that teams sign up to walk and they keep someone walking on the track the entire 12 hours. The first lap at 7 p.m. Friday is reserved for cancer survivors before they are joined by family, friends, and others wanting to help raise money for cancer research. Held at the Valdosta Middle School track, it’s a terrific way to spend time with friends, family and co-workers while getting some exercise, raising money, and raising awareness of cancer. Chances are very high that you, a member of your family or a close friend has or will have cancer at some point in your lifetime, so the support you give today may help you or someone close to you later on. Consider joining the city in support of the Relay for Life.
