Walking the Walk at Relay For Life

Mercer County residents gathered at Anderson-Dean Community Park Saturday to raise money in the fight against cancer.

The event featured a walking path lined with white bags called luminarias that feature the name of a loved one who is either battling cancer or passed away from the disease.

Walking wasn’t the only fundraiser offered at the event. Food was served by the SBC Mission Group, a slushie truck was on site for kids to cool down as the summer sun set in the background. Raffle items including a signed UK basketball, gift cards to local restaurants, back to school gift baskets, and several other dozen items were auctioned off with all proceeds going to Relay For Life.

Participants at Relay for Life lit luminaria, candles for loved ones fighting cancer.
