The Logan County Unit of the
American Cancer Society is having its seventh annual
Relay For Life at Scully Park, across from Union Planters Bank
in downtown Lincoln. Relay For Life kicks off Saturday, June 19, at
6 p.m. and ends at 6 a.m. Sunday.
All cancer survivors are invited to
participate in the cancer survivor lap, which will be at 6 on
Saturday evening. Survivors need to register by 5:45 p.m. First-year
survivors will receive a medallion. Survivors who already have a
medallion are asked to please bring it when you come to register.
All participating survivors will receive a 2004 pin.
A drawing will be held after the
survivor walk for a chance to win two round-trip airline tickets to
anywhere in the United States for a survivor and guest. The tickets
are donated by Air Tran Airlines at Bloomington Regional Airport.
During the Relay For Life, there will
be a silent auction. Items to be auctioned may be viewed at Union
Planters Bank and State Bank until Friday evening.
The event will include entertainment
and games. Food will be available.
