As darkness falls, families and neighbors
recall the battle against cancer

The Luminary Ceremony is the soul of the annual Relay For Life, this year held Saturday at Wayne Underwood Field in Grantsville.

At dusk the participates quietly remember those whose lives have been touched by cancer. In the soft glow of the candlelight, they reflect on the courage and strength of all who are affected by cancer.

Family members light their candles of remembrance

The lighting of the luminaries as the names are read, this year by Richard Welch, is a long list of community people who have survived the dread disease and many who did not.

The annual fundraiser contributes to the ongoing fight to find a cure.
