County’s Relay for Life kicks off Friday at 6 p.m.
The annual Relay For Life opens Friday, June 13, at Sam Coopwood Park in Holly Springs.
Everyone is invited to come to the football field early enough to help kick off the all-night event that begins at 6 p.m. with the survivors’ lap.
Relay for Life is a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society and provides money for transportation and other needs for those undergoing treatment for cancer locally. Part of the money from the relay goes to research for a cure for cancer.
The evening is packed with fun, live entertainment, food, contests, games and activities that mobilize the community while celebrating those who have won the battle, remembering those who lost the battle, and raising money to fight cancer.
Everyone’s presence and participation will be greatly appreciated.
Sam Coopwood Park is located at 123 Highway 4 West in Holly Springs.
