Not only will Relay For Life of Franklin County be fighting back against cancer at this year’s event, participants will be tackling hunger as well. During the May 15-16 event, luminaria bags will be held in place with cans of food instead of sand. Following the event, all canned food will be donated to the local food pantry.
Anyone desiring to purchase luminaria may do so by using a credit card on the event’s website, www.relayforlife.org/mtvernontx
or through other means by contacting Tracie Decker at 903-588-2615 or any Relay For Life team member. See the April 16 edition of the Optic-Herald for more information.
