Relay for Life looking for teams

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is the most successful fundraising event in the United States.

Today, there are more Relay For Life events in the United States than Walmart stores.

Each year, more than four million people in more than 20 countries take part in the global phenomenon and raise funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.

Relay For Life of Clay County 2013 will be the county's 17th event. The annual Relay For Life of Clay County event has been scheduled to take place May 18, from 4 p.m.-6 a.m., at the YMCA of Clay County, 225 E. Kruzan St., Brazil.

Teams interested in signing up may do so by logging on to http://www.relayforlife.org/claycountyin.

The goals for Relay For Life of Clay County 2013 are to have 28 teams, 60 survivors and raise $30,000.

A relay kickoff has been planned for Tuesday, Jan. 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at Pappy's Barbecue, Brazil.

Mix and mingle time is scheduled for 6:30-7 p.m., with a program slated for 7 p.m. The keynote speaker will be Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham.
