Scores of Union Parish
residents took part Saturday
in the 2017 Relay For Life
of Union Parish. It marked
the 14th consecutive year
for the event. In addition
to raising awareness and
funds that help provide
services for cancer victims,
their caregivers and for
cancer research, the event
also allows cancer survivors
to offer encouragement
to one another. After the
opening service each year,
the Survivors Lap kicks
off the event each year,
a moving tribute to those
who won their fight against
the disease.

Event leader
Jennifer Yelton thanked
the community for its
outpouring of support for
the event, something she
says without which it would
be impossible to make it.
