Plans Underway: 2016 Relay for Life
Relay For Life is a chance for communities to fight back against cancer. It’s a chance to honor those who are currently fighting cancer, those who have beat it, and those brave individuals who have lost their lives to the unforgiving disease. It’s a night for the community to come together to walk and run around a track to raise money to fight a disease that has claimed too many of its neighbors. It’s also a chance to celebrate and remember. The event kicks off with a Survivor Lap, where cancer survivors are honored by their loved ones and all those who are present, for their courage. A Luminaria Ceremony takes place later that evening, where candles are lit in honor or memory of all those who have been affected by cancer. Proceeds raised from Relay For Life allow the American Cancer Society to continue their services to cancer patients and their families. Nearly 14 million cancer survivors will add another candle to their birthday cakes this year. Help Bennington County at their 26th annual Relay For Life and raise money for an incredible cause at Mount Anthony Union High School on Saturday, June 25, from noon to midnight.
