The Boyle County Relay for Life will hold its official kickoff meeting 6 p.m. Thursday at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Main Street.
Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's team event to fight cancer and is the largest cancer fund-raiser in the nation. It was held in more than 3,300 communities nationwide last year. The public may participate in the Relay June 18 by having a team, becoming a sponsor or volunteering to help the committee plan the event itself.
"We're excited about our plans for 2004 and look forward to having new teams and participants join us," said Debbie Lowe, Boyle County event co-chair. "This kick off is just the beginning of great things to come."
Food and drinks will be provided at the event Thursday evening, during which the public is invited to learn more about Relay for Life.
