From left, Carole Summerall, Will McReynolds, Billy Bob Phillips, Matt Jones and Tabitha Barham, all of Columbus Fire and Rescue, show how a “Stuff the Boot” fundraiser works Wednesday. It’s just one of the creative ways Relay for Life teams around Columbus are raising funds for cancer research. Lowndes County’s Relay for Life event is Friday, April 25, from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. behind Columbus High School. The public is invited to an evening of remembrance and celebration, featuring live music, food and a variety of activities.

Team spirit: For Relay for Life teams, it's more than just raising money -- it's personal

For Carol Summerall, it's personal. And for Jean Bailey, Herod Granderson and Laura Brownlee. In fact, for the great majority of Relay for Life team members, the fight against cancer is personal.
