Fight against cancer

Sunday, April 29, 2012
Relay team members of the Sikeston High School class of 1972 walk in the opening ceremony of the Scott County Relay for Life on Friday night at the YMCA in Sikeston. At Relay, which was from 5 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday, several events were geared toward cancer fighters and survivors, such as a special tent for them, certain laps and even a luminaria ceremony. Live and silent auctions were also part of the event. (Photo by David Jenkins, Staff) Relays are coming up in New Madrid and Mississippi counties as well. It will be from 6 p.m. May 17 to 6 a.m. May 18 at the East Prairie High School Football Field and 6 p.m. June 8 to 6 a.m. June 9 at the New Madrid Elementary School. For more details on any of the Relays, go to and search for the specific town or ZIP code.
