BECKLEY Y- Preparations for next summer's Relay for Life in Raleigh County are underway.
Organizers announced Monday night that the event will take place July 11 at the Crossroads Mall parking lot in Mount Hope. They chose the theme Colors of Hope, since each type of cancer is assigned a color.
Volunteers encouraged the community to get involved in the battle against cancer. "Cancer affects every single one of us," explained Pat Davis. "We want to invite the community to join us in fighting this disease."
Organizers hope to have 50 teams in attendance at the event. They aim to raise at least $110,000. To get involved, click here.
