Relay nets just under $50,000-and counting
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.
