Walking for a cure
A sea of purple took center stage Saturday morning as cancer survivors kicked off the annual Relay For Life at Tracy High.
For 24 hours the track was filled with walkers as they made laps for donations toward the American cancer Society.
The infield was filled with tents as the teams set up their camp for the day and nights events. I covered the opening ceremonies and the first lap on the track walked by cancer survivors.
One of the highlights of the relay is Saturday night’s luminaria ceremony that surrounds the track and part of the bleachers. It can be a bit of a challenge shooting in the dark but the lanterns against the darkness made for a strong statement.
