Festive event, deadly serious cause

Several of the cancer survivors who took part in Myakka City’s first Relay for Life last year won’t be back this year. They have passed away as a result of the disease.

“It’s an excellent statement on why we need to support this event and to have this community come out. We are a small, close-knit community and it hits home anytime one of these people passes away,” said Danny Cacchiotti, chairman of the survivors committee.

Myakka City will rally for 18 hours starting at 6 p.m. Friday for the Relay for Life as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The event, which continues until noon Saturday, will be held at Myakka City Community Park on Wauchula Road.

Take a look at the faces of some of the survivors who plan to take part in this year's Relay.
