Relay for Life fighting cancer with food, cars and fishing

— Food feeds the belly. Cars fuel the fun. Fishing calms the soul.

All three will also fight cancer.

For the past 15 years, the city of Athens has participated in Relay for Life to give back to the community by raising awareness of cancer and funding the American Cancer Society. Last year the city of Athens Relay for Life Team raised $10,351.

“We want to beat that amount this year,” said city Relay Captain Holly Hollman.
