Relay for Life set to kickoff fundraising efforts

ANDERSON — Thursday the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Madison County will officially get underway as event volunteers and participants gather at Community Hospital Anderson Education Center for a kickoff rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year.

The informational meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at Community Hospital Education Center, 1923 N. Madison Avenue in Anderson.

Although the Relay For Life of Madison County is more than four months away, now is the time to get involved. One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon. Residents are invited to attend the kickoff celebration to learn more about the upcoming event and how they can become part of an exciting overnight event that will pave the way to a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Relay For Life participants and visitors have a chance to celebrate the victory of local cancer survivors during the Survivors Lap; remember those who are fighting cancer or those who have lost their battle to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony; and participate in the Fight Back Ceremony, which gives everyone a chance to proclaim his or her own way of taking action against the disease.

Donations can be made to this local Relay For Life event by visiting RelayForLife.org. Community members also can start or join a team by following the links to their local Relay event.

The 2014 Relay For Life of Madison County will take place on June 13-14 at Pendleton Heights High School Football Stadium beginning 6 p.m.

Information: Cara Roach at (317) 344-7800.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
