CELEBRATION LAP — Cancer survivors waved ribbon wands, rang cowbells and made noise with clappers as confetti poppers were ignited at the close of their lap Saturday at Kiwanis Park in downtown Union City during the Obion County Hometown Walk of Hope event. They were led by this year’s honorary chairman, Stevie Gossett, a three-year cancer survivor. At the close of the event, sponsorships and money raised throughout the year and at the walk event by 12 loyal teams came to $170,269.15. All money raised goes directly to patients in Obion County who are fighting cancer. Walk of Hope’s fiscal year ends Sept. 30 and donations to add to the overall total may be made at the Walk of Hope office, located at 902 Perkins St. in Union City.
