Relay for Life starts Friday at 6 at city park
The 2011 Marshall County Relay For Life opens at Sam Coopwood Park in Holly Springs Friday at 6 p.m.
If it rains out activities at the park, the event will be moved to the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Building, according to Connie Mason, co-chair of the Relay committee.
Cancer survivors are encouraged to attend. Meet at the survivors’ and caregivers’ tent at 6 p.m. to sign up. The opening ceremony begins at 7 p.m. with the survivors’ lap; teams will make their laps immediately afterward.
It is not too late to join the entertainment lineup, Mason said. Gospel groups, soloists, duos or quartets are encouraged to provide the musical lift to carry the evening. Call Mason at 662-252-4807.
There will be plenty of food to buy from teams – hot dogs, hamburgers, funnel cakes, and maybe some fish – plus cold drinks available. Teams donate their proceeds for the evening to the Relay.
Teams will also provide activities for children. Be sure to bring out your children or grandchildren and make it a family night.
Luminaria can be purchased from any team member in advance or Friday in memory or honor of a loved one. There are three levels of participation – $10, $25 and $50.
Everyone is invited to enjoy the evening and support a worthy cause.
