The annual Relay For Life of Appanoose County will be held Saturday, June 28 on the track behind Lakeview Elementary in Centerville.
The first volunteer committee meeting was held Tuesday, June 10 at Morgan’s Ice Cream Parlor to begin the planning process for this year’s Relay. The event is still seeking volunteers, walkers, cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders and anyone wanting to make a difference, to organize and recruit fundraising teams, garner community supports, coordinate logistics, seek refreshments and pries, plan entertainment and land a hand to ensure the success of the 2014 event.
Relay For Life of Appanoose County will kick off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 28 with a special survivor’s lap, honoring those who have defeated cancer. Survivors will join together to walk the opening lap while the rest of the event’s participants surround the track to cheer them on.
