Relay for Life

Event unites families for a common goal

Local participants say Relay for Life gives them comfort

By Shelley Spillman

The American Legion Park was lined with 1,000 luminaries Friday night for Relay for Life. Each flame represented individuals who are still fighting against cancer but mostly, individuals who lost their battle.

People walked the track and would periodically stop when they recognized a name, kneel down and take a photo.

Emily Gritton, 17, was one of those individuals. She stopped and smiled when she recognized her father’s name, Lynnwood Gritton, who died 4 years ago from colon cancer.
