Massac County Relay For Life calls for community involvement

METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

Volunteers, teams and sponsors are encouraged to participate in the upcoming Relay For Life of Massac County.  

From organizing teams, to entertainment planning, to fundraising, there are countless ways to get involved and help make this cancer's last century. 

There may be only a few meetings left for the planning season, but that is still enough time to participate in some way. 

The next meeting will be Monday, April 8 at 6:30pm in the basement of the Metropolis Public Library, located at 317 Metropolis Street. 

Relay For Life of Massac County is a fun, overnight event that celebrates cancer survivors and caregivers, remembers those who have lost their battle against the disease, and empowers people to fight back.

Relay For Life of Massac County will be held Friday, May 17, 2013 at Ft Massac State Park, located at 1308 E 5th Street, Metropolis, IL.   The theme for this year's event is "Lights! Camera! Relay!" 

Teams are encouraged to develop sites for the evening around this theme.
