Relay for Life captain’s meeting next week

May 19, 2009


The final team captain meeting for the Relay For Life of Douglas County will be at 5:30 p.m. May 26 in Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s auditorium.

Captains will select their campsites and make final preparations for the 25th Relay for Life event in Lawrence.

Relay for Life involves teams of eight to 15 participants who take turns walking around a track for 12 hours. Teams may camp out while music, games and entertainment go on throughout the night. The event celebrates cancer survivors, supports current patients and remembers loved ones. It also raises money for the fight against cancer.

This year’s event will be from 7 p.m. June 12 until 7 a.m. June 13 at South Junior High School.
