"Survivors are the heart and soul of Relay for Life".

"We're really excited about this change because this venue gives us a lot more opportunities to grow the event".

"One of the coolest things.is the Luminaria exchange, where (Relay) events from different states, different parts of the nation, (send) bags to the other side of the country.to represent that those folks are here", she continued. Teams set up tents around the field selling items off to raise funds for ACS while one team member represented the group circling the track.

However, people who don't want to walk but want to see the luminary ceremony are welcome to do so. "I want to finish the fight against cancer so that they do not have to speak to 4th and 5th graders when they are nearly 50", McCarthy stated. After the opening ceremony, cancer survivors took a lap around the track of the fairgrounds, followed by caregivers.

"You can expect to laugh, you can expect to cry, you can expect to be very busy", says Vinall.

"I could have either stuck my head in the ground and had a pity party, but I rallied and I'm like I'm not going down".

" I mean just getting through the days, that's all I can say, it was just very tough", said Leslie Antley, Cooper's sister.

The preteens and teens organized a lemonade stand to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The Relay for Life of Greater Utica kicked off Saturday afternoon.

From the moment of diagnosis, an individual is considered to be a cancer survivor, so anyone from those recently diagnosed to those whose cancer experience is years or decades past is invited.

"I had scans in August that showed the chemo was working", Hart said.

"I have stage three breast cancer, and I have been battling this for 10 months-we've been battling this for 10 months", said Sarah.

"Newtown has such a wonderful and supportive close-knit community of survivors and caregivers", he said.

The night wrapped up with a Luminaria Ceremony, where loved ones were memorialized with decorated paper sacks arranged in a glowing pattern, and the Fight Back Ceremony. Local businesses who have gone out of their way to ensure our event is a huge success year after year.

And for Port Orange resident Carla Braga, one of the many cancer survivors present during the Saturday, June 9, event, the day held an extra special meaning. "It's an honour to be the face of Relay and I'm happy to help others".

"It's everything. The survivors - listening to their stories and their journeys".
