2014 ACS Relay for Life has large crowd, exceeds goal

By Courtney Fair
Correspondent
The American Cancer Society held its annual Pickens County Relay for Life April 11 at the Gordo High School Football field.
This year’s event displayed more of a carnival feel with bouncy houses and slides, games, a rock climbing wall, food booths and music. The 2014 theme was “Light up the Night to Finish the Fight,” with honorary and memorial luminaries placed around the track with names of those who have lost their fight with cancer and those who continue to fight.
Mayor Craig Patterson opened up the event by sharing his personal connection to the fight with cancer and encouraged the crowd.
“This is an event that is close to my heart. Next month it’s been 15 years since I lost my dad to cancer,” Patterson said. “Let’s remember those who we lost and keep praying for the ones who are fighting the battle.”
The Pickens County Dixie Youth baseball teams lined down the side of the track opposite to the luminaries and cheered on those who walked in the cancer survivor walk. When the survivors finished their lap around the track, former Miss Alabama Shannon Camper Chandler was waiting for them on stage to deliver her testimony of her battle and victory over cancer.
