It’s about hope.
Friday afternoon, the Mannington Relay for Life celebrated its third year overall raising money to discover a cure, to remember loved ones and to rejoice with survivors after yet another year.
This marks the first year the relay has been presented at Hough Park, a big step forward in terms of space available compared with previous years.
“Every year we’re growing,” said Sandra Parenti, chairperson for the event. “Here, we’ve got room to expand.”
Marion County Commission President Randy Elliott, a Mannington native, said Hough Park was really designed for these kinds of events. He thought the move to the park was a good one.
