A rainy day couldn’t stop participants in the 2014 Relay For Life of Delta County, which started Friday at the Marble Athletic Field in Gladstone. Above, cancer survivors carrying balloons take a victory lap to the sound of Katy Perry’s “Roar” during a special ceremony Friday night. At left, event guest speaker Jon Giese is shown. The 24-hour fundraiser will benefit Hope Lodge, an American Cancer Society project, and help to fund cancer research.
