Hundreds Turn Out At "Relay For Life" At Masterson Station Park

Hundreds of people turned out at Masterson Station Park in Lexington for the American Cancer Society's annual fundraiser, "Relay for Life." ABC 36 was proud to help sponsor the event, which included a fundraising team from the television station.
Unseasonably cool weather and a brisk wind didn't keep hundreds of people from turning out for the American Cancer Society's annual "Relay for Life" at Lexington's Masterson Station Park.

The event began at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and continued through the chilly night into Saturday morning.

An estimated 200 cancer survivors took part in the walk. 

There were hundreds more there to honor family and friends who lost their respective battles with cancer.

Going into the event, an estimated $140,000 had been raised, with more coming in through the course of the relay. 

ABC 36 was proud to be a sponsor of the event.

ABC 36 News Anchor Lauren Gawthrop was the Captain for the television station's fundraising team.

In the weeks leading up to the relay, Lauren spent each Thursday afternoon after her shift, grilling out at the TV station, with all of the food sale proceeds going to the fundraiser.

Lauren worked tirelessly for weeks organizing the station's team and fundraising efforts in honor of her late father, who recently lost a courageous battle with cancer.

A sincere thank you to everyone who donated and took part in the "Relay for Life."
