Knocking Out Cancer - Relay Style

Cancer survivor Braydon Smith rases his boxing glove with Relay for Life Chairman Tony Aguilar next to the survivors’ cake shaped like a boxing ring during the annual Relay for Life of Hopkins County Survivors Dinner: “A Taste of Italy” in the First United Methodist Church gym Saturday evening. Aguilar met Smith seven years ago at a Relay event. “Braydon is amazing,” said Aguilar. “It’s survivors like him who keep me going.” For this year’s Relay, Aguilar is taking cancer to the boxing ring in an homage to the “Rocky” films. An estimated 58 survivors attended the event and received purple shirts to wear on the honorary first lap for survivors at this year’s Relay for Life fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, which kicks off May 18 - 19.

Most everyone has seen a mountain, and many spectactuar mountain ranges can be found across the nation. In West Texas, there are the Davis Mountains, as well as those in the Big Bend that are part of the Great Rocky Mountains range, along with the lesser mounds found in the Hill Country.

And in Hopkins County we now have our own “mountain.”
