Relay for Life this weekend

Hope and progress in the fight against cancer will be celebrated during the 15th annual Boone County Relay for Life this Friday and Saturday, June 10-11, at the Boone Central High School track.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Friday and continues through 7 a.m. Saturday. It is held each year to raise funds for American Cancer Society research, education, advocacy, patient services and programs. Last year’s Relay for Life raised $22,900 for these purposes.

At 8 a.m. on June 10, volunteers are asked to help prepare the luminaria so they can be placed around the track.

Cancer survivors are encouraged to come and register after 6 p.m. that evening. Their names will be read as they come to the track lane. Cancer survivors will walk or ride on a golf cart for the first lap.
