Relay for Life continues mission in new location
Ella Moses holds her 4-year-old daughter Nylah Hickey, who smiles after getting a magenta butterfly painted on her cheek. Im a four-year survivor, said Moses. I was invited by a friend and came from Rockvale to be a part of McMinnvilles Relay for Life.
The community came together in downtown McMinnville on Saturday to honor survivors, remember loved ones lost, and raise money to fight cancer at the 16th annual Relay for Life. Many local survivors gave passionate testimonies when asked what this event means to them. “It’s emotional to me because we’re here,” said Gretchen Rhea while fighting back tears.
