Special option to honor survivors

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Soon there will be a unique way to remember and celebrate loved ones who are currently or have battled cancer in the past.

The Brazil Times, as part of its participation in the upcoming American Cancer Society's 2011 Clay County Relay For Life event, will be sponsoring "Countdown to Relay."

The front-page feature will consist of small bios and photos of local residents who have battled cancer. Family members, friends, local businesses and organizations may sponsor a featured survivor or memorial with a donation of $10, which will be used to support the event scheduled to take place at the YMCA May 14-15.

Times General Manager Lynne Llewellyn confirmed the features will be available everyday The Times is published, starting March 2-May 13. Specific date reservation will be based upon a first-come first-serve basis.

For more details about participating in "Countdown to Relay," call The Brazil Times during normal business hours at 446-2216.

For more information about how to participate in the 2011 Clay County Relay For Life, log onto the local Relay website http://www.relayforlife.org/claycountyin, the event Facebook page (Clay County Relay) or read Clay County Relay For Life Chairperson Carrol Evans' blog "Updates for Relay" at www.thebraziltimes.com.
