Annual Relay for Life is celebration of living

The seventh annual American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Franklin County is a celebration of cancer survivorship and a fun way to raise vital funds needed to help find a cure for cancer.

The format for 2014 has changed. Instead of being overnight, it will be from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 3.The event will begin with a survivors’ lap, where cancer survivors will take a victory lap around the track at Don Meredith Stadium. The lap will be led by this year’s honorary chairman Jimmy Foster. For more details, see the May 1 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
