ACS Relay For Life 2002

May 10th, 2002 ~ North Alabama Fair Grounds
May 10th, 2002. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life was held at the
North Alabama Fair Grounds in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
This was the first ACS Relay For Life in the Florence area.
Over One Hundred Fifty-six Thousand Dollars was raised in the
Florence-Muscle Shoals area at this years Relay to fight cancer.

The cancer survivors walked the first lap of the Relay For Life.
Each survivor wore their Survivor Medallion and held a helium filled balloon.
The entire audience applauded during the entire lap.
The sound was deafening. At the end of the lap, all of the survivors
filed out of the building, and at the Master Of Ceremonies signal,
said a silent prayer, and let their balloons go.
The balloons quickly floated up and away, to land who knows where.
