Students hold Relay for Life mini relay

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Students at Double Churches Middle School are showing their support for the fight against cancer.

A Relay for Life mini relay was held last Friday ahead of this week's Relay for Life event at Kinnett Stadium.

Each grade competed against the other in various walking competitions.

Teachers and students say Friday's mini relay was especially meaningful because of the loss of a teacher, Cherie Jones.
