The Wall of Hope returns to Gresham at the 10th annual Relay for Life Kickoff event held at the National Guard Armory on Thursday, March 1. Covered with signatures from last year's Gresham Relay for Life event, the Gresham Wall of Hope traveled with ambassador Eric Jones, who lost his wife to cancer in 2003, to Washington, D.C., last fall to join Walls from more than 4,400 communities around the nation at the Capitol to send a message to congress that fighting cancer needs to be a national priority.
