The American Cancer Society's 2rid Annual Relay For Life in Meriwether County will take place on Aug. 1-2, 2003, at Greenville High School. Relay For Life is a fun- filled overnight event designed to Celebrate local cancer survivors and to raise money for . Research Programs for your American Cancer Society. Relay represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated. It has been said that Relay For Life is one huge support group for cancer survivors. Agreeing with that theory, the Honorary First Lap, at 7PM on Friday is led by can- cer survivors, who wear t- shirts declaring theft victo- ry over cancer. Later, a Luminary Ceremony is held. The bagged votive candles, which are sold during and prior to the event, burn throughout the night and serve as a reminder to all participants of the reason for the Relay For Life. Relay For Life involved teams of 10 to 15 people tak- ing turns walking or running around a track, relay style, for the duration of the event. It is a non competitive, team building event. Participants from the community come from busi- nesses, industry, churches, schools, neighborhoods and other organizations ..... any group wanting to join togeth- er to fight cancer. Teams camp around the track and participate in a variety of activities while waiting their turn to relay. From line dancing and live bands, to trivia and scav- enger hunts, we have some- thing for all. With awards given for the Best Decorated Campsite, the Best Team Spirit, and much more - there is fun and competition for everyone. We are now in the process of recruiting new Relay For Life teams, cancer survivors, corporate sponsors, and entertainment. If you are interested in becoming involved with the Relay For Life, please con- tact Amanda Bacon at your American Cancer Society at 770-460-8920.
