An event that is growing in popularity in DeWitt County is here.
Relay for Life is this week and hundreds are expected at Clinton High School this Saturday. Whitney Stoolman, with the American Cancer Society, explains they have a great time during the 12-hour event that seeks to recognize survivors of cancer, those who are currently fighting the good fight and those who have passed on.
Stoolman indicates they really want to emphasize the honoring and remembering part of the event. She explains they also hope to raise awareness towards prevention.
The Relay for Life has grown in DeWitt County and Stoolman says they've seen area businesses and organizations step up to support their efforts in different ways.
