They’re fundraisers that happen all around the country, and Saturday night, a relay for life event is just getting started in our area.
The Worth County Relay for Life benefiting the American Cancer Society will be taking place at the Worth County Fairgrounds.
The event started at 5:30 and goes until about 9. We were there when event organizers were setting up for the night, they say the relay for life events are so important to helping to find a cure for a disease which affects so many.
“I’m a walking example of what cancer research can do. It’s been 10 years since my diagnosis, because of all the people in our county, state and nation that raised money for this disease,” says Cindy Pangburn, a cancer survivor and chairperson of the event.
There will be a survivor’s lap followed by a butterfly release to honor cancer survivors.
