Mayor proclaims ‘Relay for Life Days’
Holly Springs Mayor Andre’ DeBerry has proclaimed June 3-9 as “Relay for Life Days” in Marshall County.
He encourages citizens to participate in the annual Relay for Life event at Sam Coopwood Park on Friday, June 8, at 6 p.m. through Saturday, June 9, at 6 a.m. The park is located on Highway 4 East in Holly Springs.
Relay for Life is the signature activity of the American Cancer Society and celebrates cancer survivors and caregivers, remembers loved ones lost to the disease, and empowers individuals and communities to fight against cancer.
Money raised during Relay for Life of Marshall County, DeBerry said, supports the America Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives and creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays – by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures for cancer and fighting back.
Relay for Life helped fund more than $150 million in cancer research last year.
