Support Relay for Life

THE POWER IN PURPLE campaign to help raise funds that will be added in this year’s Relay for Life totals include from left Dina Hines Dell Amy Frederick Mayor Tom Rowland and Janet Conley

Beginning Friday, the Miami County community will walk to raise money and awareness for cancer research at a Relay for Life event over the weekend.

"There's no cost to come and enjoy the party".

Leroy and Chatham Chicks Crush Cancer are young veterans of Relay for Life. Following the music will be the luminaria ceremony. In 2016, the Relay sold 109 track signs and 627 luminaries.

Louise Fonteyne, coordinator of the Relay, says she hopes it will give more people the opportunity to get involved and "see what Relay is all about".

Over 250 participants were part of the day-long event that kicked off at 11am on June 2. "Being a part of the survivors' lap allows them to celebrate what they've overcome while at the same time inspiring and motivating the rest of us to fight cancer", said Luna.

"We can save the American Cancer Society money, so more of the money we raise will go to the American Cancer Society, we cut the costs in half", Kolwelter said. Participating teams will participate in a number of events, some of which will be in the spirit of this year's theme, O Canada. "This event allows the caregivers to come together and know they're not alone either", she said.

The Relay For Life begins each year with the Survivors' Lap.

The Wash Mo Blues Society also will perform from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sobel has volunteered with the American Cancer Society for almost 20 years since the start of the Relay for Life in Wilton. Registration information is available by calling 304-406-2111, although registration also can take place Saturday morning prior to the race. Competitors don't have to be on a Relay team to participate, according to games and activities coordinator Paula Rose. "There will be lots of fun things for the kids to do". "We're excited about this year's event, and we're just thankful for all the support".

A silent auction starts at 5 p.m. featuring a wide variety of items donated by area businesses and Relay For Life team members.

While it is a fundraising event of its own, participants held other events leading up to Relay for Life. Dollars raised by the four million Relay participants in more than 20 countries help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding cancer research, providing free information and services for people with cancer who need them, and by helping people reduce their risk for cancer or find it early when it's most treatable.
