Logan County Relay For Life honoring survivors and celebrating hope May 17 and 18

Send a link to a friend

DonutsTo the editor:

The Logan County Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society will take place on Saturday, May 17, and Sunday, May 18, 2008. Saturday's events will take place on the campus of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary. This is the 11th annual Relay in Logan County -- 11 years of celebrating hope, celebrating those who have survived this disease called cancer, honoring those who have been taken from us because of cancer and having a team event to fight this terrible disease. We can't think of too many people who have not in some way been affected by cancer, either by being diagnosed with it or losing a loved one because of it.


Survivors are a very important part of our event. They either have or are enduring this disease, and we honor them with special activities as part of the Relay. Registration of survivors will begin at 11 a.m., with a special lunch provided to survivors and their families free of charge. At 1 p.m., the survivors will begin the Relay with the walking of the first lap of the relay in honor of their endurance. After the first lap, members of the teams relaying will join in. At that time, we will draw for prizes to be given to registered survivors. These prizes have been graciously donated by other members of the county community.

If you are a cancer survivor or if you know of someone who is a survivor, we would like you to contact us so as to be included in the day's events. Tonita can be reached at 732-9796. Melanie can reached at 732-1689. Susan can be reached at 732-9281.
