Relay For Life underway in Bryan County

Posted: Updated:

Folks in Bryan County are stomping out cancer at the Relay For Life taking place at J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill. Teams sign up to take turns walking all night to raise money for the American Cancer Society. More than 20 teams with over 150 people are participating. The Survivor Reception started at 6:30 p.m. and the opening ceremony took place at 7 p.m.

"Cancer touches each of us personally. We all know somebody that has had cancer or survived cancer. I think it touches everybody is a really personal way and that is why we get such a great response out here," said Shane Grey, committee member.

The Bryan County Relay For Life hopes to raise $60,000. The event is not over yet, there will be food, games and tons of fun to encourage those walking through the night.
