Local Relay for Life event set for May 6

Team runners and walkers in the Relay for Life, known as the world's largest fundraising event to combat cancer, will take turns walking or running around the track or path at the school.

There will be food, games, and activities for all ages, with a focus on providing entertainment, building camaraderie, and raising even more money for the American Cancer Society, according to organizers.

The event, an worldwide ACS campaign, is a team experience where participants walk around a track for six to 24 hours, depending on the length of the relay.

Big changes have happened for Daviess and Martin Relay for Life events. "Cancer patients don't stop because they're exhausted, and for one night, neither do we". "In the past, we've had it at the City Park and the fairgrounds". Look Good Feel Better teaches beauty techniques to women in active cancer treatment to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. We've heard many people say, 'We didn't know that was going on.' We want more people involved and attending. "We are honoring the survivors and remembering the ones we have lost due to this terrible disease and we want to put an end to this". Participants celebrate their survivors and caregivers. "But you don't have to walk or run at all". While the race is not an official timed event, runners are encouraged to keep their own times, Schroeder said.
