Relay For Life kick-off rally slated

FARMINGTON — On Thursday, Jan. 14, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Franklin County will officially get underway as event volunteers and participants gather at the UMaine Farmington Campus in Room 023 of the Roberts Learning Center at 6 p.m. for a kick-off rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year.

Anyone interested in forming a team, volunteering for the event, joining the planning committee, or just finding out more about Relay For Life is encouraged to attend. Relay teams representing families, clubs, religious and civic organizations, neighborhoods, and local businesses will join the race to beat cancer by celebrating survivorship and taking turns walking around the track.
