Mary Nehring, honorary chair of the 2018 Mississippi Shuffle, leads the first lap Aug. 10.

"We are moving closer every day to a world free of cancer," she said.

Cancer survivors wear purple shirts at Red Wing's Bay Point Park.

This is the 30th local Relay for Life with the American Cancer Society and participants collect pledges and walk as teams throughout the night. Money goes to help local residents battle cancer. Speeches, food and gear are part of the activities.

Starting at dusk, the luminaries light the way.
