The Lee County American Cancer Society hosted its Annual Relay for Life at Buffalo Stadium last Friday night. A few hundred people participated in the night-long event, that included various fund raising teams gathered throughout the field, enjoying fellowship, prayer, and time to help raise awareness about cancer and the fight to find a cure.
