Relay for Life Kick Off is Feb. 11

VERSAILLES--The 2013 Relay For Life Kick Off will be held Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m., at Shawnee Prairie, 4267 State Route 502, approximately one half-mile west of Greenville.

The Kick Off sets the stage for the summer-time event. This year’s Relay For Life has a jungle: “Don't Monkey Around – We’re Wild About Finding a Cure.”

Ideas will be shared during the Kick Off for how teams can support this theme. Also, the Kick Off will highlight the three key features that draw Darke County residents to Relay For Life each year – these important elements center on the themes of “Celebrate,” “Remember,” and “Fight Back.”

Participants will be able to network with Relay For Life team captains and hear their stories of hope along with details of why they participate in the event each year. Let their stories inspire your participation in Relay For Life July 19-20 2013 – plan to attend the community event, volunteer to coordinate an activity, enjoy some refreshments, or – for the most fun – form a team.

Relay For Life is not just a way to raise funds for research to find a cure for cancer, it’s also an excellent opportunity to celebrate with cancer survivors.

To learn more about how to put together your own team and get some great fundraising ideas, attend the Relay For Life Kick Off.
