Upshur County Holds Relay For Life Event

Posted: Updated:

Friday marked the 15th Relay For Life in Upshur County.

Many people participated in the annual Survivors Walk. Caregivers were able to join in for the Caregivers Walk.

Participants said there were plenty of things for the families to do at a Relay for Life event.

"It is great, its is absolutely great. My husband is actually a cancer survivor and we look so forward to the survivor walk. Then I get to join him for the caregiver walk which is immediately following that and its is wonderful," said relay participant Karen Persinger.

The Relay For Life was held at Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School. It was an opportunity for the survivors to be out with other survivors and to raise money to find a cure for cancer.
