It was an­other great year for the Chero­kee County Re­lay for Life as the 2017 event net­ted just un­der $50,000-with more to come!

This year’s event was held on Fa­ther’s Day Week­end, Satur­day, June 17 in the Chero­kee County High School War­rior Foot­ball Sta­dium.

The event open with an in­tro­duc­tion of some 30 lo­cal sur­vivors and the num- ber of years they have been free of the dis­ease. Prior to the Re­lay, sur­vivors were treated to a re­cep­tion in the Chero­kee County High School Ban­d­room.

Each sur­vivor was pre­sented with a medal for win­ning their bat­tle with can­cer. Fol­low­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of sur­vivors, the event of­fi­cially opened with the Sur­vivor Walk. The Heaven Seek­ers, a lo­cal gospel group, sang while the Sur­vivors took their open­ing lap.
