The Hilton Head Relay for Life spanned Friday evening and Saturday morning at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. Participants Julia Vongphoumy said she found it oddly comforting to know so many people, other than her grandmother, have battled cancer. The annual overnight Relay is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and features food, kids games, music, dancing, contests and themed walks around the track.
