The event began with Bellefontaine Mayor Adam Brannon giving a proclamation.

The walk started at the Carnegie Building, went south along Main Street, East on Columbus Avenue, turned at the Holland Theatre, and went back to the Carnegie Building.

Co-Chair Amy Brown stated that this year is Logan County's 15th Relay for Life. The Relay is scheduled for June 14th-15th at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. The event will begin at 6 pm with a Survivors' Walk and will go all night until Saturday at noon.

So far this year, Logan County Relay for Life has raised over $40,000 and has a goal of $143,000.
