Niagara Gazette —
Both Little and Edwards noted while being away from home isn’t easy, and that while they’re working hard to get their jobs done, they both look forward to celebrating the halfway mark of their tour on Saturday.
“We really want to thank everybody that’s donated,” Little said. “We have people that have donated online and we have no idea who they are. That’s pretty amazing. People have seen or heard what we’re doing and felt like coming over to our webpage to donate.”
Although this is the 5th year for the Falls relay, and the venue has moved from Sal Maglie Stadium down to Old Falls Street. The falls will be illuminated purple and there event have special permission to extend our Luminaria Ceremony (small white paper bags lit in honor or memory of loved ones that have battled cancer) through the State Park and down to the falls. We’ve partnered with the Downtown Niagara Falls Business Association and Old Falls Street to host the event, and Hard Rock Cafe is putting on a lunch and dinner VIP area for cancer Survivors and Caregivers.
Those who want to donate to Little and Edwards team can go to the website: www.relayforlife.org/niagarafalls to click on Team Bastion/Leatherneck.
