Holley Cochran / The Prentiss Headlight—Cancer Survivors

Jefferson Davis County Relay for Life raised over 24,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The evening was kicked off with a reception for cancer survivors hosted by Prentiss United Methodist Church.

Survivors took the first lap around the track and were joined by their caregivers after releasing a balloon.

Each team followed by making a lap around the track with their banner. A member of each team walked the track the remainder of the evening.

During the luminaria service, each team read the names of those being remembered or honored by luminarias, sky lanterns and torches.

Teams enjoyed fun activities throughout the night and competed in several categories.
