Relay for Life Kicks Off in North Adams
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Relay for Life kicks off with the survivors' lap at 6 tonight at Noel Field Athletic Complex.
This year's Relay theme is "Relay Time Warp: Celebrating 25 years of Hope" to mark the event's 25th anniversary benefiting the American Cancer Society.
Relay For Life will begin with the survivor lap recognizing those who have won the battle against cancer followed by the "caregivers" lap. Survivors and caregivers could start registering at 3 p.m. The luminaria ceremony in remembrance of those who have died will begin at 9 p.m.
New this year will be a drawing with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society. This event is open to the public and will continue through the night with teams and individuals walking to raise money for research for the cure for cancer and in support of those suffering from the disease.
