Community wears blue ribbons for Mike Manhatton

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The WTOC team is wearing blue ribbons for Mike Manhatton to raise colon cancer awareness.

WTOC invites everyone to wear some blue with your green on Monday to join in remembering Mike.

This year's Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade was not the same without Mike, but his spirit was visible with community members wearing blue ribbons. Some people went above and beyond with their creativity and support.

"Mike was just as part of the parade as the grand marshal. He was always at the St. Patrick's Day parade and you always knew to look for him," said Cornile Sheahan and Billy Kearney.  

"It's definitely not the same without him, but I think that he is here in spirit and to see everyone that has come out in their blue ribbons today really means a lot. I hope the WTOC family and mike's family knows that everyone's thinking about them and praying for them," said Randi Hempel.
