Hanging with Heroes

Long capes and bright tutus were the outfit of choice Monday night as the leadership team for Burke County Relay For Life announced its goals for 2017. The kickoff celebration had one of its largest attendances over the last several years, and participants donned big smiles and silly costumes to get into the spirit of this year’s theme – Heroes of Hope. This year’s Relay is slated for Saturday, April 29, from 3 to 10 p.m. at Burke County High School’s football stadium, and the goal is $65,000. Last year’s 17 teams brought in $62,764.21. Pictured alongside the group’s mini Batgirl Emma Lively are, from left, Marah Johnson, Shannon Lively Norton, Jessica Posey, Jean Vaught and Chris Oliver.
