Madison County’s Relay for Life will be held Friday, April 25, at the Madison County Recreation Department on Hwy. 98, west of Danielsville.
The theme this year is “Mark Your Calendars for More Candles” and will be shown by each team representing a popular holiday at their campsites.
Besides survivor, caregiver and team laps, events this year will include a “Holiday Icon Contest,” a cake walk and performances by numerous local bands.
New this year is a laser show, which will take place on the field at midnight. The event is open to the public, donations are welcome and appreciated and organizers say food and fun will definitely be in abundance at the Relay this year.
“Cancer deaths have declined 20 percent since the early 1990s, thanks in part to Relayers nationwide,” stated an American Cancer Society press release.
