Relay For Life Looking For Cancer Survivors

The American Cancer Society of Fayette County and the Relay for Life Organizing Committee is searching for local cancer survivors who would like to participate in this year's Relay For Life event and attend the pre-event Survivor Dinner.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

The 2008 Relay For Life of Fayette County will be held on Friday, May 2nd starting at 7:00 Pm. It will be held at the Kiwanis Fairgrounds off of Goza Road and Georgia Highway 85. The public is encouraged to attend and support the teams selling baked goods and crafts.

The pre-event Survivor Dinner will be held at April 27th at 5:30 p.m. in the Kiwanis building, located at the Kiwanis Fairgrounds. Dinner will be provided by Shane’s Rib Shack. Survivors and their caregivers will enjoy the company of others who have traveled the cancer journey. They will be entertained by guest speakers and the group, Music Alive.

To register to participate in the 2008 Relay For Life, Survivors need to complete a Survivor Form. Survivor Forms are available at the Fayette County American Cancer Society Office located at 301 Kelly Drive in Peachtree City. For more information about the Relay For Life event and the Survivor Dinner, please contact Anne Williams at 678-920-0353 or or the American Cancer Society's Fayette County Office at 770-631-0625.
