The annual Madison County Relay For Life will be held this Friday evening, May 8. Come join the fun as all local teams, of Madison County, will be gathered at the Madison County High School football field for the relay against cancer. The fun-filled festivities kick off Friday night at 6 p.m. with the Cancer Survivors taking the “opening lap.” Food, fun and fellowship (along with the great effort of fighting cancer) will continue all night until midnight. Relay For Life is a family-oriented team event where participants can walk relay-style around the track and take part in fun activities off the track. All citizens are urged to attend (not just team members) as the fun and games are held for ALL to enjoy. All money raised during the Relay For Life Event will go towards the individual team’s “fundraising pot” and will help fight cancer through the American Cancer Society.
