Last Friday evening, I had the pleasure to photograph the Relay for Life event in Overland Park/Leawood. It was great to see so many teams representing so many businesses, community groups, churches and friendships across the two suburbs. The total amount raised was somewhere over $25,000!
Look at this little cutie:
This mother-daughter pair was walking during the survivor’s lap that kicks off the 12 hour event — the mom’s sign says, “This lap is in honor of my daughter Emilee!”
These next two photos were taken during the moving luminaria ceremony — everyone gets a candle lit if they know someone battling cancer, have taken care of someone battling cancer, know a cancer survivor, have lost a loved one to cancer — it was amazing how quickly the candles were lit up.
