Relay for Life Kicks Off in Lynn Haven

Posted: Updated:

Lynn Haven Relay for Life has taken up a western type theme, complete with cowboy hats and bandana's.

About 100 people will be participating in the events Friday night. There will be chubby bunny contests, line dancing, and more.

Shelby Case is the organizer for Relay in Lynn Haven.

Like many volunteers she has personally been affected by cancer in her life, making her participation personal.

"My grandfather died of liver cancer when I was seven," said Case. "He actually was not even a drinker and so it was kind of a fluke thing and I was very involved with helping with his care with my grandmother. 

"It just stuck with me and I've been involved in Relay for about seven years and its just close to my heart."

The Relay in Lynn Haven starts Friday night at 6 PM at the Recreation Complex.
