Local teams to rally against cancer at Relay for Life
Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the 15th Annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Pope County gets underway with teams gathering at Glenwood City Park on June 12 at 6 p.m.
With this year’s event, area Relay for Life teams will have participated for 15 years in Relay for Life to honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost to cancer.
Relay brings together people from all walks of life, all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease. Relay for Life’s luminary ceremony takes place after sundown, honoring the community’s cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease.
Participants will circle a track that is surrounded with glowing luminaries bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer. Luminaries may be purchased for $10 by calling 320-634-5111 or by visiting RelayforLife.org.
Funds raised through Relay for Life of Pope County help the American Cancer Society impact the lives of those touched by cancer within the community.
