Symbolic support

Bosque County Relay for Life beats weather odds, hope comes in all colors

By Simone Wichers-Voss

All week, the weather forecast predicted rain. But when it was time for the annual American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life teams to set up around the Cub Stadium track Saturday, it was perfect walking weather.

After putting their thumb print on the Tree of Life and their hand prints on the 2017 slogan sheet, Bosque County cancer survivors took to the track for the first lap; their stride strengthened by Rachel Platten’s Fight Song. The song’s words “This is my fight song; Take back my life song, Prove I’m alright song,” are symbolic for the fight against the dreaded disease.
