Relay for Life of Madison County was held on Friday evening, May 4 at the West Tennessee Farmers’ Market in downtown Jackson. Companies, teams and individual participants who, together, have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the organization gathered together amongst survivors, their families and other community members for an evening of raising further awareness and funds.
Relay for Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, and its main goal is not only to raise money, but to bring awareness and honor survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to cancer. Each branch of the global organization is staffed and coordinated by community volunteers.
