18th Relay For Life in Mankato

Posted: Updated:

Ceremonies continue for this year's Relay For Life of Blue Earth County, the 18th year for the area and its the 100th anniversary for the American Cancer Society, the group behind the event. 
 
The corner of Main Street and Victory Drive is filled with people enjoying food, entertainment and games. And taking time to remember all those lost to cancer, encourage those still in the fight, celebrate survivors, and honor all those caregivers who make it possible to survive a cancer diagnosis.
 
The Relay runs until 1 a.m., leading the way were survivors, donning purple shirts, part celebration and part memorial for a disease that seems to touch everyone's life in one way or another.
