CUMMING — A sea of purple filled the Cumming Fairgrounds on Friday night as the community came out in force for this year’s Relay for Life. The annual walk drew 56 teams and some 700 participants, many decked out in purple, the color of cancer awareness, said Brooke Van Buskirk, a Relay for Life specialist for the American Cancer Society. Van Buskirk said the strong numbers were probably a result of Friday evening’s nice weather.
