Relay for Life team captains have been invited to a kickoff event at Roane State Community College tonight at 6 p.m.
“Any team who is not signed up already, we can do that there,” said Lindsey Lawson, publicity chair for the Relay for Life committee. “We will also be discussing the event.”
The purpose of the event is to provide captains with information. Any group such as a church, business, or organization can form a team.
“We’re going to be serving dinner for everyone who comes,” Lawson said.
The Relay for Life committee, who is hosting the kickoff, will begin to hold team captain meetings at Jacksboro Middle School the third Thursday of every month at 6 p.m.
Relay for Life will be held May 17 at JMS this year. It will begin at 5 p.m. and is supposed to end around 1 a.m.
The Relay for Life committee has set as a goal to raise $85,000 this year. At last year’s event, around $75,000 was raised.
Money raised is donated to the American Cancer Society. Those interested in more information can find it at relayforlife.org/campbelltn.
