Relay for Life

[simple_slideshow]

The Mint Hill Park on Fairview hosted the Matthews-Mint Hill American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life May 18-19.  Teams raised money for the walk and set up booths, selling treats and passing out literature.  Throughout the night at least one team member was required to be on the track, representing the sleeplessness of cancer and the fight against it.  Cancer survivors wore purple and led the walk with a Survivor’s Lap.  Tina Ross (below), Mint Hill Commissioner and Hodgkin’s Disease survivor, opened the festivities saying “We walk tonight because we can make a difference and give those we know, as well as those we don’t know, more birthdays.”
