The rally is an opportunity for all county residents to come together to kick off the 2014 Relay for Life of Southern Wood County, learn more about the event and how to get involved.
Teams will be competing in a soup and chili cook-off. Everyone is welcome.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is an annual overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, dance and take turns walking around a track relay-style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminaries around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors, as well as friends and family members lost to the disease.
The 2014 Relay for Life of Southern Wood County will be held May 16-17 at the Bowling Green High School football stadium. The event starts with opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. During the May Relay a live auction as well as basket auction, luminaria ceremony in memory of those who died due to cancer, survivors and caregivers reception, and other fun events will be held.
New Relay teams and individual participants are always welcome.
For more information on the event, or how to get involved, call Brian Gibson at (888) 227-6446 ext. 5205 or visit http://bit.do/relaysowoodcounty.
