Mike Ullery | Daily Call Miami County Relay For Life co-chairs Belinda Anderson, left, and Robin Hetzler, right, walks the Survivors' Lap with Tom Goffena of Sidney to kick off the 2018 Miami County Relay For Life event at the Miami County Fairgrounds.

At the same time, Co-Chair Gayle DiBenedetto continues to help by supporting planning, logistics, and survivorship activities. A resident of the Finger Lakes area in NY, she is a member of National Relay Leadership Team as well as the Northeast Regional Leadership Team.

At the west end of the Relay track, the Garden of Hope will have Caregiver Pinwheels and the Torches of Hope.

After nightfall, participants held a special vigil, lighting the walkways with luminarias adorned with names of individuals who have lost their battle with cancer, are now fighting cancer, or have managed to overcome it.

Relay for Life is an annual event that takes place in cities all across the country, including here in Wausau. The opening ceremony will start at 7 p.m.by Deacon Hans Gayzur and special guest survivor speaker, Cindy Volk.

Mr Farrington told The Newtown Bee that he first became involved with Relay in 2004.

" I mean just getting through the days, that's all I can say, it was just very tough", said Leslie Antley, Cooper's sister.
"When you have no eyebrows, no eyelashes, no hair and you've been through the wringer - they get you as close to death as they can to save you - you feel invisible, like you don't even exist", she said. I Relay because I LOVE Purple Power! "I think I was afraid of being scared. Helping find that answer for cancer", said Sarah.

The money raised in Venango County will be used by the Cancer Society to fund research, free wigs for cancer patients and additional local programs such as Road to Recovery.

Friends drove her to every radiation appointment in London, which she never attended alone.

"We had about 300 participants previous year, said O'Rourke".

"Putting together an event like this is not easy; it takes about a year of planning", said McMurter. About 300 people were there during the first hour of the event. "I'm young, I'm going to make it, I'm going to beat it", said Cooper.

"Our mission is to save lives faster", Castillo said. "Relay has both a sad side and fun side, but people always come back year after year".

"I Relay for those who can't".

Some things old and some things new have been planned for the 2018 Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley.

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

"Our event is so moving and incredible to be a part of", she added.

The two-day event featured memorials for cancer victims as well as celebrations for survivors like Southington's Kayla Ingriselli, above.
