We are preparing for our fifth annual Relay for Life to fight cancer. From the Kentucky State Cancer Registry, here are the facts for Boyle County: From 1996-2000, 719 Boyle County residents were diagnosed with cancer. The most common sites included the lungs, breast, prostate and colon. Three hundred thirty-five Boyle County residents lost their lives to cancer from 1996-2000.
Please come out to the Boyle County soccer track June 18-19 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and help us in the fight. We have 30 plus teams of 12 people committed to help fight this battle.
One survivor lap starts at 7 p.m. Candles will be lit in honor of or in memory of a friend, family member or co-worker at 10 p.m. Candles can be purchased for a suggested donation of $5 per candle. These candles can be purchased in advance or at the relay.
