Lordeen Requet (front row, center) cut the ribbon to kick off the annual Shelby County Relay for Life Saturday evening in Shelbyville.

The theme of this year’s Shelby County Relay for Life was “Fight Back, Remember and Birthdays.” The event, which is on a rotating basis, was in Shelbyville on the courthouse square. It took place from 4 p.m. until around 11 p.m. as teams worked hard to sell food, and offer games to raise money for the fight against cancer.
   There was an assortment of activities that took place at the bandstand that evening as well as the silent auction that was held in the teen center located on the south side of the square.
   This year the teams consisted of the Cure Seekers, the Rose Garden, the South Shelby Rappers and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. All of the teams had conducted fundraisers to raise money leading up to the evening.
   Lordeen Requet gave her testimony about her recent bout with cancer and cut the ribbon during the ceremony to officially kick off the event. As with the tradition of the event, the first lap was walked by the survivors and the second lap, family members, loved ones and care givers, joined the survivors.
