Also on the scene, selling lemonade, was Kenzie Marks, a local little girl who stood strong in her own battle against cancer, and won.
 
“One thing that makes everything worthwhile is Ms. Kenzie,” said Shanda Hughes, spokesperson for McCay Chiropractic. “Kenzie and her family raised $365.00 at our event today, and they also had a second group at another local event. In total, they raised $625.00, to which the groups that helped them turning $1.00 to $3.00, making their grand total at $1875.”
