On Friday, April 19, Ole Miss students and Oxford, MS residents participated in a Relay For Life walk to raise awareness and money for cancer.
The walk started off with the singing of the National Anthem and presenting the cancer survivors of the Oxford-Lafayette area.
The children of the Oxford’s Boys and Girls Club sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to the cancer survivors, which goes along with the motto of Relay For Life, “Celebrating More Birthdays”.
The cancer survivors then took the first lap around the circle to start off the all night walk, which goes from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Students participated by walking and also by setting up team tents where they sold baked goods and had games to play to raise more money for their team.
Relay For Life is sponsored by the American Cancer Society a health organization devoted to eliminating cancer.
