This weekend marks the 19th annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Ripley County.The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event is often defined as a celebration of life, symbolizing the courage and spirit of more than 600,000 cancer survivors who, each year, proudly walk the event’s survivor lap at more than 5,2000 Relay For Life events worldwide.“More people are surviving cancer than ever before and I am one of them,” stated Jeni Schnebelt, a cancer survivor.”“In fact there are nearly 14 million cancer survivors living today. Thanks to the advances we’ve made in the fight against cancer, I am living proof that this disease is survivable, but there is still more work to be done to ensure everyone diagnosed with cancer celebrates more birthdays.”“That is why we hold the Relay For Life of Ripley County each year. We are inviting all cancer survivors, no matter if it’s been one day or one decade since their diagnosis, to come out and be celebrated.”Local cancer survivors will be honored during multiple activities at the event beginning Saturday morning.Survivor celebration activities offer both survivors and caregivers an opportunity to experience healing, receive support, and celebrate their collective victory over cancer.Relay For Life begins with a Survivors Lap at 8 a.m. This inspiring lap honors the courage of all who have defeated cancer. Cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) join together to walk the opening lap – unified in victory and in hope. It’s an emotional example that Relay For Life is ensuring more lives are saved every year.“The Survivor Lap is one of the most moving experiences of my cancer journey,” said Jeni Schnebelt. Each year, I’m overwhelmed by the crowds of people who surround the track cheering on survivors like me. It reminds me that I’m not alone in my fight against cancer” says Schnebelt.After dark, those who have been touched by cancer are honored and those who have lost their battle are remembered during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer. “The Luminaria Ceremony brings to light the impact cancer has had on our community and inspires us to do everything possible to find a cure.”The atmosphere of Relay For Life is one of camaraderie and celebration, providing an opportunity for cancer survivors to pass the torch of hope on to those still battling cancer or those who might be touched by cancer in the future.If you would like to make a donation for a luminaria bag in honor or in memory of someone touched by cancer, please contact Jeni Schnebelt at [email protected] Luminaria also will be available at the event. All donations received for luminaria and the Relay For Life as a whole are used to fund the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives and create a world with more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.
PITTSBURGH — At halftime there was an unusual face atop Syracuse’s scoring column: Michael Gbinije.The small forward-turned-point guard-turned-small forward again saw an expanded role with Baye Moussa Keita’s injury — he was the only bench player to get in the game for the No. 1 Orange — and took advantage with a seven-point first half.He played some point guard, as he has often done this season, and he played shooting guard, too. But he also got a chance to move back to small forward a handful of times with SU (24-0, 11-0 Atlantic Coast) forced to go small without Keita.Gbinije didn’t score in the second half, but he played 22 minutes during Syracuse’s 58-56 win against No. 25 Pittsburgh (20-5, 8-4) on Wednesday in front of 12,935 at Petersen Events Center.“He gave us a great first half,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I thought he played really well in that first half.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith Trevor Cooney cold to start the game — he missed his first two 3s — the Orange turned to Gbinije for its first triple of the game.He played effectively on the wings of the zone and insisted on getting the ball out in transition whenever he pulled in a rebound as the point guard. Facing Pitt’s staunch defense, his decisions let Syracuse get some baskets in unsettled situations.And when Gbinije disappeared on offense, Cooney emerged. The guard hit a pair of 3s in the second half, including one with 6:55 remaining to knot the game at 45 — the first tie since it was 14-14 midway through the first half.He got hot enough, and is enough of a consistent threat, that when Tyler Ennis charged down the floor for his last-second shot, the mere threat of a Cooney game-winner gave the freshman an easier path.“Somebody for Pitt ran to Trevor because he was on the same side as me,” Ennis said. “I pretty much had to beat one guy.” Comments Published on February 13, 2014 at 1:49 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+
