The Relay For Life of Shelby County is coming up August 11th. The event helps raise awareness and fundraise for cancer, and anyone is welcome to come. Sarah Lucht, a staff partner for the American Cancer Society, says its all about celebrating the community's survivors.
The Relay For Life is being held from noon to midnight, and there will be no shortage of activities during the 12 hour window.
Other activities include a silent auction, inflatables for kids, and live music performances from various artists. Once the clock strikes midnight, the fundraising totals for the day will be announced. However, Lucht thinks that as long as they are honoring the survivors, and those affected, the day will be a success.
