Relay for Life happening Friday in Ishpeming

The highest fundraising team and the most creative campsites will be given awards that night, Zabala said. Registration can be taken up to the event, so anyone interested can either call Kolwelter, or show up to the event and register on-site.

A luminary service at 10 p.m. will recognize those who have lost the fight to cancer and support those who are still fighting or have survived.

Cancer isn't going to be cured tomorrow.

Prior to the Relay kickoff, the 5K Relay For Life Run/Walk will begin at 9 a.m., with the first 50 entrants receiving West Virginia Lottery tickets, bags and an event shirt. "As someone who was a caregiver who lost their survivor, sitting at that bag and being supported by your community is an unbelievable feeling, and I hope that the community is able to feel that". It provides wigs and make-up for cancer patients to make them feel good about themselves during chemotherapy treatments.

"We did it together; we did it as a team. We couldn't get enough people on board".

"We do this for you, and it's been our privilege to do that".

"For cancer patients, they're accepting the challenge, they're going to fight cancer, they're going to beat cancer, and that's why our slogan was finish the fight", explained Becker.

Messenger said he Belmont County Relay For Life would like to thank Wheeling Hospital "for their generosity in sponsoring our Survivor tent for the Survivor dinner, our D.J., and a 70-foot inflatable obstacle course for the event".

About 40 people were in attendance for the ceremony as Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks and Christian county Judge-Executive Steve Tribble read a proclamation naming it "Paint the Town Purple" week in honor of Relay for Life.

Survivor Reception - 4:30 p.m. Participating teams will participate in a number of events, some of which will be in the spirit of this year's theme, O Canada.

"It hadn't spread anywhere", she said.

"Everything has a shelf life, and the expiry date is now, and it's time for something new". "They see that we are supporting them. And maybe we need a little bit of input from the community". Today, she is cancer-free.

"Our relay had become stale", she admitted. Pilatzke retired after 36 years with Union Gas. "Last time I checked online we were at $99,000, and that's not counting anything we have here in terms of onsite fundraisers that we have here".
