The community is invited by the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Christian County to an ice cream social to celebrate the first Relay For Life meeting of the year next Monday, February 8 at 6 p.m. in the Taylorville High School cafeteria. Crystal Sewell, Community Manager for Relay For Life for Christian County, told Regional Radio News it will be an informational meeting and free ice cream will be served to those who attend.
This is an opportunity for the community to interact with the event leadership team, share their fundraising progress and successes, ask questions, learn how the community benefits from funds raised, and learn how cancer survivors and caregivers will be honored. Sewell says they do a lot for the community and have been planning this event since last year.
Last year in Christian County, 143 participated in the Christian County Relay For Life event and raised over $49,000. Subsequent meetings will take place every second Monday, starting in March.
