When most booths were still being set up at 5 p.m. on Friday, Rhonda Stone was already walking steadily around the track at Veterans Memorial Park. The cancer survivor said she would still be there walking when the Relay for Life event officially ended at 11 p.m. Stone has, for the past 10 years, walked the track at the Dawson County Relay for Life celebrations, staying through the entire event whenever she could. The 54-year-old was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 1985.
