Newton County hosted its annual Relay For Life Friday, welcoming dozens of participants who took time out to use this as an opportunity to support the cause of finding a cure for cancer.

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, and is annually staffed and coordinated by volunteers from more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries.

Friday’s event began with a celebration for anyone whose lives had been affected by cancer in any way, and concluded with a closing ceremony commemorating those who lost loved ones to cancer.
