Walking with hope

BRIAN BOHNERT / Review Times

“I AM HOPE” reads across the back of many t-shirts worn by cancer survivors Friday evening during the Survivor’s Lap at Memorial Stadium as part of Fostoria’s Relay For Life event. Those in attendance who won their battles against cancer were invited to take the first steps to kick off the annual event. The all-night walk-a-thon began at 6 p.m. Friday and will end at around noon today. Various themed laps took place every 30 minutes, including a “Blow Away Cancer” lap when walkers blew bubbles; a “Zombie” lap when selected zombies attempted to tap walkers who then turned into zombies themselves; and a “La Vida Loca” lap when walkers wore sombreros and played tambourines and maracas. The first lap on the track was known as the Survivor’s Lap where all cancer survivors were invited to take the first steps. Relay’s goal this year is $53,000.
