The 2010 Calhoun-Liberty Relay for Life will be held at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown on Friday, April 30th, thru Saturday, May 1st.
Teams have been working hard to raise money and awareness in the race to find a cure for cancer. The Relay for Life Event is the culmination of a busy year and will provide the community with a chance to come together to honor those who have won the battle over cancer and to remember those who are no longer with us.
Opening Ceremonies are at 5 p.m. (CT) on Friday evening. Cancer survivors will be honored with a Survivor Lap followed by a reception and dinner. This dinner is complimentary for Survivors and a guest. Please call Mya Van Arsdale at 850-785-9205 to pre-register or come out and register at the Event.
During the event there will be a slide show featuring those who have battled cancer. If you would like to display a photo of your loved one who has battled cancer, e-mail photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the person’s name and whether “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” along with any other information you would like to have included. Submissions must be in by Wednesday, April 28th.
The entire 18 hour event is open to the public and admission is free. There will be food, great entertainment, and activities for the kids. And throughout all of this everyone will have an opportunity to learn about the American Cancer Society’s life saving mission as we “Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back”.
