Relay for Life

Jessica Lewis

This weekend the Relay for Life will take over the Chenango County Fairgrounds, and hopefully this wave of support and awareness for cancer will last long past 10 a.m. Saturday morning.

As someone who will be participating in this weekend’s event, I encourage everyone to come out and join me and the other countless individuals who are going to be walking the track beginning at 6 p.m. tonight.

This year I have the honor of introducing three ladies who have taken control of their lives and beaten the disease. Their courage and strength is an inspiration to us all. They remind us to value the simple things in life and not to take anything for granted.

The relay will begin at 6 p.m. tonight and last until 10 a.m. Saturday. Come down to support those who are battling cancer and those who have overcome it, and to remember those who have been lost to the disease.
