'Relay for Life'

ELLINGTON - On Jan. 24, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Tolland County and Mini Relay For Life of Ellington High School will officially get underway as cancer survivors, caregivers, families, schools, companies, faith-based and civic organizations gather at Tolland High School at 6:30 p.m. for a kick-off rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. People from all walks of life come together with a shared mission of furthering the American Cancer Society’s vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Mark your calendar for the 2013 Mini Relay For Life of Ellington High School scheduled for April 26 and 27, 2013 at Ellington High School, and the 2013 Relay For Life of Tolland County scheduled for June 7 and 8, 2013 at Tolland High School. Anyone interested in forming a team, volunteering for one or both of the events, joining one of the planning committees, or just learning more about Relay For Life is encouraged to attend.
