The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge pedestrian was decorated with hope for cancer victims.

The American Cancer Society hosted an event Friday night as part one of their first Relay-live events in Nashville - a similar event to Relay For Life.

For ten dollars, anyone could dedicate a luminaria on the bridge to honor those affected by cancer and remember those who lost their battle with the disease.

The luminaries lined the bridge, lighting up the night sky in their memory.

"Without valuable members of our community helping support us day in and day, out our programs and services would not be here today and the research and decline in cancer death rates would not be here either. So although we are a small community coming together, we are part of a big fight and it's great to be a part of that here in Nashville,” said Amy McCollom.

Relay-live will host a free music festival next Saturday at Cumberland Park. For more information on the event, click here.
