The Crow Wing County American Cancer Society Relay For Life will be 7 p.m. July 29 to 7 a.m. July 30 at Don Adamson Field in Brainerd.
Relay For Life is a fund-raiser that allows participants from all walks of life, including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers, to join together to fight cancer.
Relay For Life opens as cancer survivors, anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer, walk or wheelchair the first lap.
A luminary ceremony is planned after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. The luminaries line the track and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the importance of their contributions.
For information on forming a team or becoming involved in Relay For Life, contact the American Cancer Society at 829-6212 or (800) ACS-2345.
