As a part of the event's opening ceremonies, the winners of the Paint The Town Purple event — a new addition to Relay For Life this year that asked businesses to deck their sites out in honor of the fight against cancer — were honored.

Paint The Town Purple is just one of many ways folks can get involved with the year-round Relay activities.

Pictured here are representatives of their businesses (from left): Roxy Matts, Frank 'N' Steins, honorable mention; Amber Barnoff, East End Uni-Mart, honorable mention; Tammy Smith, Ragley's True Value Hardware, first place; Keith Harry, Northwest Consumer Discount Company, honorable mention; Matt Struss, Miller Brothers Furniture, third place; and Denise Smith and Peggy Reed, County Market, second place.
