ISSUE: Relay for Life events
OUR VIEW: Programs reflect community concern
Perhaps no community event illustrates such a supreme sense of community concern as Relay for Life.
Held annually across the country for three decades, local Relay for Life events do much more than raise money for cancer research.
These 12-hour events also do so much to celebrate survivors. From the opening survivors' lap to upbeat atmosphere, it sends a message of hope draped in purple.
