Relay for Life at Thomas College 


The Relay For Life of Waterville In Memory of Martha "Marty" Spann,
took place October 21 - 22. 
With 115 registered participants, including six cancer survivors and ten teams, the event raised over $20,000 to help find a cure in the fight against cancer.


The walk had many different events happening throughout the evening to allow the participants to share their experiences and chlumaallenges. One of these was the lighting of the luminaria bags. The night was brightened by the glow of the illuminated bags, each bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer. All the bags represented someone special who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to fight back in their honor.  This year's Relay had 225 of these bags lined around the track as the participants walked their laps. 


The evening was a huge success!  Many thanks to all who donated, volunteered, or walked at the event this year.   To read more about the Relay for Life, click here.
