County’s Relay for Life June 12-13 at city park
The 10th annual Relay For Life in Holly Springs/Marshall County is set for Friday, June 12, from 6 p.m.-6 a.m. at Sam Coopwood Park in Holly Springs.
The Relay for Life committees are asking individuals to come out to the park to celebrate the evening with survivors, families and friends and to purchase luminaria or purple bows to support the fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society.
Luminaria sell for $10, silver luminaria for $25, and gold luminaria for $50. The presentation of the luminaria to honor someone living or the memory of a loved one who lost the battle is one of the most moving segments of the evening.
Individuals can also purchase purple bows to help raise awareness of the event in the community in the Paint The Town Purple segment of the event. Purple bows sell for $10 and $20 each and can be attached to the lampposts, a business door, or a mailbox and call attention to the annual fundraiser.
All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society to help raise cancer awareness and to pay for research for the cure, as well as to help Marshall Countians, who are currently fighting cancer, with transportation costs to go to treatments or doctor’s appointments.
